Pat – thank you; here is the approach I used to make those 'wispy lace looking areas'. The numbered processes relate to the series of screen shots further below.

1. Using a brush that I created some time back for drawing hair, I made three impressions on the canvas at an angle
2. Then I turned those white dots into a temporary brush, reduced its size and used Tin's Mura Meister Copies script to create a circle.
3. I duplicated that circle and flipped it horizontally.
4. The visible result of step 3 was fed into GMIC>Deformation >Sphere
5. From that sphere I made another temporary brush, varied it by angle and aspect ratio and again used Mura Meister copies to produce a new circular shape.
6. Then I once more duplicated and flipped that shape and 'voila' the outside ring.

The remainder was just a series of variations on that theme. Hope this is what you were looking for.

Thank you, OMG, for your instructions. As soon as I can get GIMP on my computer, I will try and see what I get!

Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a new chance to rebuild what you want.

Issabella - thank you very much for your comment :D

An attempt at grandmother and granddaughter; reasonably happy with outcomes but obviously still a lot to learn yet.

One day last week on my early, morning walk along the path by the creek, I looked up the steep incline through the gum trees and saw that the moon had just re-appeared from its 'eclipse' and was now sitting low, full and bright above the rooftops.
