PostCrossing 4: Moths and Maths
My awesome parents sent me the Dover Pictura Butterflies book a while ago [OMG – I can get Dover books on Amazon? With Prime?! Watch out pocketbook…] and there are a few full page illustrations that I thought were particularly gorgeous. I wanted to add something to the illustrations, so I scanned a table of numbers from an old builders’ reference guide and faded that into the background. Then it occurred to me that a customized PostCrossing “cancellation stamp” would be a cool thing to have, so I poked around a bit and sure enough, found a tutorial. Translating the “warp text” instructions to gimp-speak was a bit of a challenge, but I eventually found the text along path option and was on my way. (You’ll need to click through to the original images on flickr to see my cool cancellation stamp :-)
The last two of these will go out today!
