This is fun. More or less followed the tutorial except I upped the Twirl numbers. Applied the Linear Burn blend mode then clipped the result to one of the crop shapes and applied a drop shadow. Put it on a background to which I applied one of jodis frames.
These twirls would make some beautiful word art for digital Scrapbooking pages. Just clip the twirl to text and it's ready to go.
I sure would like to see an example of what you mean Janice! Clipping is not something I am familiar with; I can't see to get straight which image is the shape mask and which will fill the shape (sorry for the incorrect vocabulary; I hope you understand what I am meaning).

This wasn't what was intended, but I found the image striking enough to want to share it. After doing the radial blur, I ended up twirling the original flowers instead of the blur. I nudged them left and right and it became this sort of heraldic bird-like image.
