My 1st Junk Journal Altered Book

So I created this Junk journal Altered book for a friend that I trade atcs with on I am thinking about opening an Esty shop for my art and thought about adding these as well, but wanted some feedback from someone other than family.

I thought I would share this one, since it was my first. I was looking for a journal that I can carry with me at all times to doodle, draw (and I use that term very loosely), or just write down random thoughts or ideas. The lessons I learned while creating it were inspired from several places. Mostly by watching a lot of YouTube videos but was drawn to two creators: 

LorriMarie Jenkins
Lisa Vollrath

Please excuse the dogs barking in the background of my video. Hopefully this will inspire you to create your own.

Thanks for stopping by.

Random thoughts

Hello, I know it has been awhile since I have posted. Life has been crazy and I feel like I am getting back into the groove. I just wasn't feeling inspired at all.

I lost my grandmother in June and even though I knew it was coming, it certainly did not make it any easier. She was my biggest cheerleader and is the loudest voice I hear in my ear besides God. Her life lessons made me who I am today. I remember her voice saying "There's Big mama's baby", Big mama is here", as I they wheeled me out of surgery. It made me smile just to know that she was there.

With that being said, I know that life is short and I must continue to do the things that bring me joy and let go of things and people that don't cheer for me.

Happy Saturday to you and go out and do something that you LOVE today.

You are Unique and One of a Kind!!

My 1st swap as a Hostess

So I recently completed my 1st swap on The theme was Inspirational Paint chips. The goal was to create a ATC on a paint chip and add a inspirational quote. Since this was my 1st swap I only had 12 players but that was fine with me. It was so much fun going to the mailbox and picking up everyone's creations. I made all players a personalized ATC in their favorite color.

Every wonderful player created awesome sets and a hostie for me. I will treasure them forever! 
I look at them often as the quotes are uplifting. I don't have a favorite; love them all. 
Until tomorrow!!!
Make some Art; it will make you happy!

Hello and Welcome

It is currently 1:52AM in the morning and I am up calling myself creating ATCs for swaps I am playing and hosting. However, what I am really doing is looking at pages from a link on one of the profiles on website. I thought what a wonderful idea.

Thus, Punch+Color+Glue&me was created.

My plan is to post some sort of art everyday here plus random thoughts.

My art journey started about 6 years ago. I purchased a groupon for Painting with a Twist and had so much fun.

I looked at the calendar and wanted to take another class but my schedule would not work for me to attend. I had a thought maybe I can do it myself. I discovered Michael's and Hobby Lobby for art supplies and never looked back. I took over my kitchen table with every acyclic color I could afford, a small easel and cheap brushes.

Fast forward  to August 2017, I found website and discovered Artist Trading Cards. Oh my goodness, I so love this site. I have only been trading th…
