Just a few things before we get started…

Use my tag as a reference image for element sizing. This will help with both PS & PSP users.

To scale/resize, click shift + left click and drag to the size you want. In PS you will be using your move tool. In PSP this will be your pick tool.

PS users can drag an image from one window to another. For PSP users, you will copy & paste as a new layer.

PS users only – if you aren’t sure how to apply a mask in PS, please follow the tutorial here: http://humbuggraphicsgalore.blogspot.com/2011/02/using-any-b-image-as-mask-in-ps.html

Open your mask & P22. Apply your mask to your paper. Convert to smart object, then rasterize layer.

Open a new blank image, 600 x 600. Drag your mask onto the blank canvas.

Now lets add our elements:

66 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale so it is slightly smaller than the height of your mask. Place to the left side.
27 – edit, transform, flip horizontal. Drag to your working canvas, then scale to size. Place towards the top of the shed, a little to the right. Now move it below the shed layer.
75 – drag onto your working canvas, then scale to size. Place to the right side.
82 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale to size. Place over the bottom half of the shed.
51 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale to size. Place to the bottom right.
28 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale to size. Place to the bottom left of the shed. Duplicate & place to the bottom right of the clothesline.
58 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale to size & then place to the bottom.
4 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale to size & place to the right side of the clothesline.
24 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale to size & place to the right side of the shed.
73 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale to size & place to the bottom of the flower vine.
26 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale to size & place to the top of the shed.
78 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale to size & place to the bottom left.
20 – drag onto your working canvas. Scale to size & place to the bottom of the wheel. Duplicate & place to the bottom of grass on the right side.

Open your tube, resizing as necessary. Drag onto your working canvas. Move this layer so it is just above the wheel layer. Place to your liking.

Add your name, copyright, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers, then merge visible. Save as a PNG.
