The Yard Ghost


Frank put this up in the yard. He's just a kid at heart!

I added the sparkle and overlap effects in Photoshop. Basically I selected the white area, made a new layer from the selection, blurred it slightly, duplicated that layer, then moved one "ghost" layer slightly to the right and the other to the left, erased the face so the background face showed clearly, reduced the opacity of the "ghost" layers and changed the blending mode to Dissolve.
