I love art journaling on Vintage Papers. It adds so much interest and the possibilities are endless. Doing a small page is always fun and this journal size is perfect when you wanna do a page on the fly. At approx.  5” X 5”, with both square and scalloped pages this is the ultimate mini. Hand made in the USA with only authentic Vintage Papers…it’s impossible to not create something gorgeous!
