Three Muses Challenge, New mITSYBELLE kit, & Last PAM JAM Freebie!!!

This week's challenge at "Three Muses" is UP, UP AND AWAY! This is the little bit of weirdness I cooked up to send their way; it's called "Joe's Garage":

You can check out what other artists made for the challenge (or submit one yourself!) at:

SECONDLY, the very talented mITSYBELLE has a new kit in her store: "In the Den", which features 12 papers in shades of blue, gold, brown and off-white, and 42 beautiful elements ranging from scrolls and flowers to lace, an assortment of frames, and flowers.

Altered Art aficionados take note: the kit ALSO contains an antique globe, a jeweled magnifying glass and matching letter opener, and a really cool antique compass. Here are some layouts I made using "In the Den", all featuring the amazing Sunny, who TAKES HER OWN PICTURES (yes, including the gorgeous Bahamian wedding shots!!!)

Right now, "In the Den" is 30% off, and you can purchase it for a mere $3.15 here:


The final installment of PAM JAM: "Odds and Ends" (with the opperative word being ODD). You're getting a melange of elements, old photos, ephemera, and backgrounds. There's weirdness galore! There's an old Victorian encyclopedia image of bats, an antique diving helmet, a few old audio appliances, a pair of fangs, more silly hats... even a flying pig! You can snag it HERE:
SO... now I have to hit the books hard this week. I've got a paper on "Death of a Salesmen" due Tuesday, an exam on Byzantine Art on Thursday, and a term paper on 20th Century Modernism in American Literature due next Monday. YIKES!!!!!!

It's most likely I will be absent from the blogosphere that week. But here's the deal: leave me a URL for anything you create with PAM JAM this next week (if you don't have your own blog, you can upload it to photobucket and send me that URL) in this post's "COMMENTS" section. When I come back, I'll put them up on my blog. Show me YOUR weirdness!


  1. Wow!! I've just spent this Sunday moning reading your blog. Amazing scrapping, colages, designing and journaling.
    My husbahnd walked by as I was reading and your art work caught his attention. He said "I love her colors, concepts and attitude...over the top!"

  2. Great work Tammara, everything looks wonderful :)

  3. Too funny - I have that exact bat print, and was trying to fit it into a 'normal' layout. I gave up ... but now they are on the list with Napoleon and the chicken.

  11. Tammara, this has certainly been the most fun ever! While you're studying next week, I'll be playing with PamJam, and see where MY twisted mind takes me--you've given me plenty of images! Hmmm....I wonder what you'll envision with Death of a Salesman thrown in the mix?! lol

    Thanks! :)

    Delia's Answer is One

    I can't thank you enough, Tammara. I haven't had this much fun, or been more excited about an art, in a long time. I thank you, my sanity thanks you. My house probably won't :-D
