The Little Book of Black & Red

Add your creative genius to this little black book, but keep the color scheme to black, white and red only. Beyond that, follow basic Book Mooch Journal Rules and repost within two weeks. You can send jpegs to me and I will post them on my blog at

Red (Birthday Books Vol 34 of 41)

Red, red, red. Nothing but red. Art in red. Draw in Red. Collage in Red. All things redness. Red-y, set, art!

RE: Birthday Books vol 1-41. I was very excited to read about the bookmooch journal project as I usually celebrate my birthday with art/performance art madness related to the number in question. In August I will be a delightful 41 years wild. I have purchased 41 blank journals and am giving each individual themes. When all the wayward art has winged its way home to me, I look forward to a local celebration to share and enjoy these books with friends.
