I took a picture of an old doll that my mother has owned since childhood. It was all dusty and stuff. I thought it looked really old fashioned. I took several shots. This is a little something I put together.

I first processed a picture and put a special frame around it that I downloaded off the web.
I repeated processing twice more to give me three images goin across.
I copied the first set onto a larger canvas.
I then inverted the three images and placed them on the second row.
I then backed up to the previous images and equalized them giving me the third row.

I would really like to get this printed. I'd like to hang it up on the wall.

Hi Amy,
Nice montage! The original pic is really nice. But all the different effects are cool, too. The doll with its closed eyes is somehow eriee to me ('course with its eyes open, it might be even more eriee). Brrrr! I shudder to think about that. ;P Fantastic job!
You might want to check out www.americanframe.com They can print pretty large and the prices seem reasonable.

Hey! Cool montage.. got that Girly evilish feeling to it!


Great idea, Amy, and nice realisation! I like the different effects you've given to the doll. I'm not as convinced about the film negative effect, maybe because it doesn't look real enough. But I still like the montage very much, and I could definitely see that on a wall. Good job!

Woo Hoo Amy!!!

This is awesome!
I'd display it too!
I was never into dolls when I was a child, they were eerie to me...can't explain here but, man, does this bring back some of those feelings!!

Very well done!

I'd be too freaked to stay in a room with this displayed...unless it was a movie theatre. I would say "What Richard said..." except he knows more than me, so I won't try to take credit from him. I will echo the eerie sentiment.

I love this! I agree, the dolls that open and close their eyes are bit creepy, but this is beautifully done. The image itself isnt creepy however, I wouldn't know where to begin, but if you wanted to make this really creepy, take the last image and open the eye of it! I wouldn't know where to begin in photoshop to do such a thing, or else I would workshop it.

Special! Note to and quite some work !

Nice presentation of a same subject in that work! I like the result. Some kind of Pop Art look like.
