Anyone fancy a shot at this to give me a few ideas?
It's my sisters baby girl at about 6 months old.

Well here's one idea, though I'm sure you'll get many better.

Re: neice

cloned, bit of smudging, bit of texture then framed.
A bit lacking in the 'ideas' department but I enjoyed 'painting' the doll.

Re: neice

Super Peter! Really like that technique. Photoshop built-ins or a plugin?

Good question, err shall I answer it????
Okay seeing as you asked so nicely.
Could all be done with PS.
Used noise reduction very heavily to really smooth it out. Blurred with the blur brush, some parts of the face to further smooth out anything left over.
Duped and ran the Torn edges plugin, then faded the opacity of this layer to bring some colour back in the pic. Overlaid a new layer with a half tone pattern and faded the opacity slightly.
Some slight colour adjustments to finish.

Hope this is clear.

Peter
