Watercolor-esque effect with layer blending

Done in Krita (step 1 and 2) and GIMP (the rest).
The perlin noise is created on GIMP. The paper texture is made by David Revoy (… ).

Im confused about the blurring + divide part.

When creating the edge effect, how do you specify the blur to divide? I can get the edge effect if I set the layer to divide, but I can only choose divide OR multiply, not both of them.

I think there is a way to make Blur only the divide effect, but how? thanks!

After you see the edge by setting the blur to divide, merge it down to the other copy beneath it. And then overlay this merged one to the very original image.

I keep repeating myself, but it's disgusting to see the things you can do with a computer. Great tutorial!
