Some time ago I read about an assignment in a tweet, where you are inspired to put the head of a person on an animal's body or vice-versa. I thought about it, but had no convincing idea.
Today I saw a photo taken by Alan Levine, where he imagined an eye in the blossom of a rose. I remembered to have read that we can interpret assignments in our own way and decided to rather put an eye into this rose picture than a head on a body.
The eye picture for the montage I found on Thomas Seliger's website. Click here to get to the picture.
I loaded the rose picture and the eye as layers in Gimp and used some layer modes to make the eye melt with the rose. I also used layer masks to soften the edges of the eye picture. I merged the layers and exported the result as an image.
