GIMP 2.10 Tutorial: Flower Face Effects (Marcelo Monreal)

In this tutorial, I show you how to create a photo manipulation with a face cutout and flowers coming out of the hole as made popular by photographer Marcelo Monreal.

I break this tutorial down so that it is easy for beginners to understand, though it does create a really awesome, realistic final result. I use a combination of the Paths tool, fuzzy select tool, Long Shadow filter, and Add Bevel filter. The final result resembles a Salvador Dali painting (in my opinion)!
