I have tried to make my original idea with a bit more "oomph" and colour. I stuck with the same theme , a Wilbur, and the two enduring brushes with the underlying colours of the forum.
I also tried to simulate depth by having the peppers and sparkle above and below different items. This will expand on both sides as both sides of the banner are exactly the same.
I found the hardest part was to include the Forum Motto "Where Imagination Meets Innovation". It is long and difficult to place without upsetting some element in the composition.
Because of the layering and with layer masks to achieve the under and above effects of peppers and sparkles, the xcf is quite large and messy. I will upload if you require it. I hope you like this version.
I had thought that we would have had more attempts at this as it is an excellent way to learn more about Gimp and design. Perhaps there are a lot more "in the making" out there!
