Have Fun With Beryl Photo Swap

I have “borrowed” this idea from VBR simply because it is so much fun. I have a wonderful photo of my grandmother taken when she was about two years old that we are going to use.

Beryl needs a change – she would like some colour in her life, maybe some wings, perhaps a hat or a crown. She has shown an interest in zettiology recently, so feel free to explore that avenue. You can collage, paint, distress, digitally enhance etc. Basically whatever takes your fancy. She likes pretty patterns and bright colours so not too much brown or sepia.


The Important Bits
• all mediums are welcome provided you follow the guidelines below
• This is a 3 for 3 swap
• All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5” and well constructed.
• PLEASE NO HEAVY OR BULKY EMBELLISHMENTS
• Please send work you are proud of and demonstrate your best workmanship! Time, effort and attention to detail will be considered when swapping out the cards.
• Please put your user name on the back of all your cards
• Please put each card inside a plastic ATC sleeve

Postage & Sending
• Australian players please include a Stamped SAE.
• International players please include an address label and I will provide the envelope and cover your postage - an extra ATC in the swap theme is welcome but by no means essential. If you would like to include the same postage that it cost to send your cards or a carefully concealed $dollar so that I can use that in my swaps that would be lovely. Please write your user name and swap title on your envelope to me.
• Please tape your envies closed so that we don't lose any cards
• Please PM me for my address when you are ready to send your cards
• Late arrivals will be returned to their creators...
• If you need to withdraw at any time, not a problem but please let me know

Most of all HAVE FUN!!!

Who wants to play??????

have attached a picture (don't use this one as it is quite small and if you enlarge it it will lose resolution) and have posted it in my gallery as well (link below) - I can email you a copy if you like just send me a pm with your email address.

ummm......Jonquil.....is Beryl a little rascal? I ask because as I am trying to glue her onto the cards she keeps moving around and making the lines go out of whack!! and when I yell she does this :P

jonquil
06-23-2008, 05:07 PM
Oh VBR - when she was little she and her sisters would run around wild getting up to all sorts of mischief - they hid all the washing under some logs once and it all had to be done again. She did grow up to be a responsible schoolmarm though;)

jonquil
06-23-2008, 05:08 PM

Beryl has been inspiring here. We've been playing with images of my dd's face on things now... I'll get to Beryl, really I will. But she needed some friends to play with first!

Beryl always liked to entertain - the more friends the merrier;)

franciebelle
07-09-2008, 10:56 AM

I think that Miss B is a bit of a Diva in my house...I was listening to the "Mamma Mia!" soundtrack, and suddenly, she wanted a tiara, a boa, and bling!! Sigh... I have to admit that I gave in. I drew the line at bell bottoms, though!
