You can download them HERE. You will also need textures.
Look at the result to which we will strive in this lesson:
Create a new document and open the photo of the model:
Name the layer with the texture layer 1, and the layer with the photo of the girl – layer 2. Select layer 2 and press Ctrl + Shift + U to discolor the image:
Go to Filter> Blur> Gaussian blur (Filter> Blur> Blur according to Gauss)
Change the blending mode of the second layer to Hard light
Select layer 2 and press Ctrl + L to open levels. Move the middle slider a bit to the right:
Now merge layer 1 and layer 2 by pressing Ctrl + E. Take the pen, cut the girl out of the background and place her on texture3:
Use the Lasso tool (L) , to make a selection around her hair:
Add a mask to the layer and use a soft brush to remove the background behind her hair. It will turn out like this:
Select layer 1 and add a layer mask.
Next, take the fill tool , Set the black color in the palette and click on the document.
The texture will disappear for a while. Now take a white brush and click on the document (with active layer mask):
Continue using brushes like ink spots to make the background more beautiful:
Make 2 copies of the layer with the girl. Then rotate each (Ctrl + T).
Press Ctrl + L to change the colors of each copy.
Set the first copy to opacity 50%, and the second 25%.
Take a hard brush size 1 px. And circle the contour of the girl carefully several times:
Open texture1, add a mask and erase some of it:
Now add a flower:
Write the text. All here is the final result:
