If you art journal, what size of sketchbook do you prefer?

Or if you haven’t tried art journaling, what size of paper would you like to try?

Lent Art Journal

Lent Art Journal - 40 days of the Easter story. Each 4x6 page includes a part of the Easter story written in simple words and blank space to art journal.

The Lent Art Journal tells the Easter story over 40 days. Each page includes a part of the Easter story written in simple words, with Bible verses for you to look up and blank space to art journal.

This is a creative art project for the season of Lent.

  • Small size, which makes it ideal for travelling. (The 40 pages are 4″x6″ each.)
  • Simple printable, black and white digital file, so you can print at home.
  • Undated, so you can make this project an annual tradition.

The 40-day season of Lent starts on Ash Wednesday. In 2016, the season of Lent starts February 10.

The PDF file of the Lent Art Journal is twenty-one 8.5″ x 11″ PDF pages.

You could leave your journal unbound, and prop it up on a desk. Or you could punch holes in it and use binder rings to make a book. Or take it to a print shop and have it wire bound (that’s probably the best option for travelling with it).
