How do I do this effect?
My friend makes amazing banners, and I want to know how to do them. Namely, what are the effects and how she does it. Here's an example of her work:

I can tell there have been some effects because the photo looks softened and has a dreamy effect to it, and I'm not sure how she does those flowers and the purple line through it. How do I do all that?

Thanks in advance. (:

Ah, I know how to do the purple line now. How do I do those effects? I'm guessing I have to download them?

you should be able to just keep putting up layer copies, making the upper layers at only about 50% opacity, and either applying gaussian blur or a blur effect with a larger and larger diameter blur size. Sorry if i am not being too clear, im on my netbook right now, which doesnt have gimp, so i cant reference the tools list. good luck
