This is a little hymnal

that is horizontal instead of vertical...
It's a shaped note hymnal and the hymns are listed by TUNE instead of TITLE
And I must confess that I really don't know many of the hymns inside...
I picked it up at a thrift store [of course!] and thought it would
be perfect as faith based art journal -- 
Y'all know I don't like to add a lot of bulky things to my Bible Journaling 
[a personal preference.] 
But anything goes in my art journals ---
So I've really enjoyed some of the things I've ordered 
from Illustrated Faith and Bella Blvd.
Just a note: to make these pages thick enough to hold paint, etc. 
I usually gesso or mod podge a couple of pages together...
[That's wax paper in between keeping them from all sticking together!]
Sometimes I go through and do the entire book at one time, but usually I just 'glue' a few pages together whenever I'm working on a journal page.
This little book is a favorite!

Love this, Judy. I'm having more fun Journaling in an old Baptist Hymnal & have a Broadman Hymnal to work in next. This is great!
