RE: Help making swirls & wavy lines
I just downloaded a script directly from GIMP's Plugin registry that allows you to draw geometric shape paths. Amongst these shapes are rectangles, triangles, 3 different types of waves, and more. There are rectangle waves, triangle waves, and sin waves. I tried the "Whirl and Punch" and "Wave" approach, but didn't quite get the result that either of us were looking for (I also need to draw some wavy designs for a brochure). Anyway, here is the link to the script.

Once you download it and put it in your scripts folder, follow the images for instructions:
Begin by clicking the "Script Fu" tab which should appear after you install the plugin.

Adjust all of the preferences and make sure the "Stroke Path" box is checked, otherwise it will draw nothing.

The wave, in this case, will look like this:
