Now we use the smudge tool.

Ok, now we think that the top blue is too dark, so we use the lasso tool to select the area ( the magic wand tool if the color is uniform).

And then:

layer> new adjustment layer> color balance>(midtones)

cyan/red -100

It's still dark so:

layer> new adjustment layer> selective color>(relative)

neutrals: black -50

Photobucket

7- Step seven.

layer> merge visible
duplicate layer.

As this is photoshop and Olive is going to be thankful, let's use the blur tool to make a "lifting" on her neck. :P


Photobucket

8- Step eight.

The final touch is adjusting the brightness/contrast.

b +4, c -9

Photobucket

9- Step nine.

And now we only have to add the text:

GF- ordner inverted for "fake".
Violation for "smiles".

And voilà !!!
