Not difficult (unless you really are using Android)

Some screenshots for reference: https://i.imgur.com/Im0C5NH.jpg

1. Start off with the background image then add the text above that.
2. Add a new layer Layer -> New Layer above the background image. Draw an elliptical selection to cover the text (3). Then feather the selection a suitable amount Select -> Feather (4) and ok it.

5. Fill the selection with white - Use the bucket fill tool or I just click-n-drag from the white swatch into the selection. Kill the selection Select -> None
6. Go to the Layers dialogue and adjust the opacity slider to suit.

I knew it was simple! Thank you so much. I am using Windows 10!
