I would kill for the ability to warp text along any sort of path. (GIMP probably has it, but I haven't explored it much, and for this particular challenge I was test-driving Pixelmator. Which may well have it, I just don't know.) So I ended up not doing anything to the text and just using the warp tool on a texture I had created out of a failed ink painting. (I figured even if the painting was no good, the background was interesting and could be recycled.)

I meant to reply to this ages ago and forgot...

Some thoughts on these. For Stick It, I made two versions (this is the second version). On the first one, it didn't have enough whorl so I had to go back and relayer it with another background layer to weave around the girl to make it work.

The brushes on both the dance icon and the other one come from mutsies_brushes on LJ. I love her brushes.

Carousel of Time is one of my favorites. I whorled that one myself (gradient background, then a filter) and it was the simplest of all of them. It also makes me think of tiedye which is so appropriate, IMO. :)

The dance was the hardest, because not only does it have the stamp, but I had to extend the dance floor using liquify, and I don't know if the part where I hand whorled the back of the dance floor also using liquify is obvious. It didn't really come together until I added the brush.
