Brilliant!
This makes me LOL a lot. I remember showing you GIMP many years ago, and thinking at the time you just weren't ready. I'm glad you've finally taken the plunge!
Have a play with 'Curves' in 'Colours' as well.

I remember that, and some of what you told me must have stuck, because I remembered about smudging stuff and trying to blend colours into the background, and sharpening the image.

Oooh, what does that do? I think my plan for today is to experiment a bit more with splicing pics together, and working out the different ways to merge/blur the edges together.

Hee! Awesome.

I find curves the easiest way to make a pic lighter or darker, you just click on the line on the graph that pops up and drag it about until you like the look. Really brightens things up easily. You can progress to brightness and contrast in more detail later when you're more familiar with GIMP.

Yeah, splicing and smudging things are really what icons are all about for me! Have fun!!!!

Maybe you'll be able to enter the header contest!! *squeals loudly*

I just tried that thing with the curves! Cool! :-)

Nice one :) I love it. To be fair, there's probably only about ten things I can go with GIMP, lol.
