Shells: micro and macro

I have decided that the most effective way for my print to reflect my neighbourhood (Coogee) is by theming it on shells. Today I found a large amount of shells that I have collected over the years, some of which were from Gordon's Bay, an aquatic reserve five minutes away from my house. Gordon's Bay is also one of Sydney's most popular diving sites.

I'm going to try making a half-drop print with three of the shells as motifs; the scallop, spiral and tulip shells. I'll be turning them into black and white stencils but I still need to think of a way in which I can include the micro aspect of the shells in the print.
