Playing with Snail Shells ...

I found this empty snail shell in the woods ...
And decided to play with it.
Well, with the picture of the shell anyway ...

Before I go any further, let me first tell you I'm photo manipulation challenged. Seriously!
I know how to re-size and crop photos only - so it was with great trepidation that I decided to play with Gimp ...

The texture is amazing!

The shell would look good on canvas too!

And this one is just plain weird - and it's my favorite of them all!!!


  1. These are terrific, Clytie. My daughter and I both fell in love with the texture picture. In fact we like it so much that we're going to check out Gimp. I'm also photo manipulation challenged, so I'm hoping I can do as well with Gimp as you did.

  2. I love them all! lol I like the Texture picture best, too--then the ripply one. (grin) I LOVE the Gimp. I loved being the first to show you the Gimp. Don't know what I would do without the Gimp. It is such a great free program. Even better than the ones which cost an arm and a leg!

  3. I love the texture photo, although the last one has a charm, too!!
