Before and After Watercolor effect

This was a recent image taken of Kristin Conway (@_itskristinc on Instagram), at The Creative Collab meetup at Colt State Park, Bristol RI.  Though I got some great bokeh in the original shot, I wasn’t quite satisfied, and needed to do a double exposure with another image I had on the SD card.  Then I took the image into GIMP, and applied a layer mask, to create the paintbrush look.
