One more by me.
Added a threshold layer, overlay blend, opac47, also a render-clouds layer, overlay, and one ps drybrush, before merging and applying virtual p, oil, and buzz stack oil (without color edges and simplifier1). Added color to backgr.

Here i've made use of my "jaykita" impr settings which i've posted (as a ##jaykita.zip file) in the "portrait bara" thread.
However, here i've used the "filter noise - median" setting at 5, and not 1. All other steps are same as described in the other thread.
(Sometimes one could reduce brush size, and then apply noise-median setting at 1 or 2. The idea is to reduce amount of white spaces.)

1 Duplicated image

2 Opened new layer

3 Colored over the entire canvas in white with the Light Oil Flat Tip

4 Used a soft brush erasor to erase parts of the white layer over Jose's face

5 Repeated 3rd step with a sepia-ish color instead of white

6 Repeated 4th step

7 Merged layers

8 Copy/Pasted entire picture into a new window that was 100px bigger all the way around

9 Used the lasso to select "torn" edges all the way around the picture

10 Selected the white border around my picture with the lasso

11 Select -> Modify -> Border -> 50px

12 Deselected white (there is probably an easier way to do the past few steps, huh?)

13 Created new layer

14 Used a sepia-toned soft brush around the selected edges

15 Deselected area

16 Used smudge tool (splatter brush) around the edges

17 Repeated steps 10-12 but made the border 20px

18 Used a darker sepia tone and a soft brush to fill in selected area

19 Deselected area

20 Cut out white border area

21 Added a soft drop shadow

Voila
