~ Michelle, my pleasure :) :)
~ Judy, please definitely don't switch programs, not with what you're accomplishing. I too like that curl effect, so thanks for encouraging me to use it.

Francine, I've just got to the point where my program does what I tell it. Why would I switch. I'm a control freak. :-)) If I had that effect, then I'd stop being awed when you use it! That would be a travesty, so curl away, please?

No sadly at all, Francine. I'm thrilled that you repeated it so that I could learn something new too! ;-D

Hi Judy; glad you like the 'Pagecurl' effect. Sadly, I'm repeating myself as as I did one last year. This is from Gimp. [Are you perhaps now tempted? :) ] Shirley also has access to this effect via another program. Thanks.

HeyJudeNM

Francine, I love the beautiful technique of rolled back corners! Is that something new that you've learned? I really want to learn, but, alas, we use different programs. Thanks for sharing this beauty. It was great fun solving it.

Glad you liked this, Mandy. Thanks :~)

Fabulous - thanks Francine :~)

Thanks Michelle - sadly I'm repeating techniques. Weaving and Pagecurl are Gimp filters.

Wowser! I do want to know how to do this... I did a tapestry (not posted publicly yet) for which I would have loved to have this curling effect. (I have no idea how you did it. There is just so much to learn...) Absolutely marvelous, Francine. You are really showing me a lot of different effects in such a short time. Your creative drive is on overload!!! ;-D

Terrific, Francine... I really, really like this one.... So creative... So many elements you've used here... All working together to delight us.... Thank you... :) :)

Oh, I really LOVE this one, Francine. It's such a great idea. Three fantastic elements, all pulled together seamlessly. The background design is divine. The underside of the woven/metallic later is brilliantly executed, even down to the reflection of the other side in each gorgeous curl. And the weave is the perfect size, neither too large, nor too small, which would have swamped the design. And I think there's some humour there too. I can't quite articulate what it is, but something makes me smile when I look at this one. I just flat-out love it. Thanks so much.

Oh, and by the way, just to let you know, I'm back at work on Wednesday. And have lots of errands to run today (Monday) and tomorrow. So you'll be seeing a bit less of me from here forward. Dammitall. I love being on hols, and having all the time in the world to visit you and do your marvellous puzzles.

Lela, with today's ears how can anyone be in your way?

Thanks Robbie. I saw pencils; had forgotten about the nuisance days of nibs and ink wells. Pen nibs would have been a better title.

lelabugosi

Someone was standing in my way, trying to read the title, but I managed to get through in the end!

Robbiel

A very sharp puzzle Francine, the curls remind me of fountain pen nibs. Oh now I understand your heading, took me a while, very clever, thanks.
