If that's your second go at GIMP u r doing well. GIMP is awesome but there's a lot to learn to use all it's features.

I'm no great graphic artist (just look at the comments I get LOL) but a good easy effect that might work well on your wall paper would be:
1. Duplicate the layer.
2. Choose the original/bottom layer, give it a good dose of gaussian blur (from the filters menu>blur>gaussian blur) say 40 pixels.
3. Go to top layer and change the layer mode in the drop down menu and choose something like mode like soft light, overlay or screen also play around with the opacity.
This will give the picture a soft glow effect.

Another way to achieve this could be to:
go to the layer menu,
choose a new layer,
choose a big soft brush about the size of her head, choose a white colour and make one long brush stroke across her face and shoulder,
now go to the layer modes and choose soft light and maybe change the opacity. This will give her a more localised soft glow.

Another good effect could be to leave the ubuntu logo and tux in colour.

I hope I've helped and I'm not telling you things you already know.
