    Default Combination of Blending, Masking, & Extraction!

    I've had a couple of people ask me how I created this page:



    It was actually way easier than it looks! It just takes a lot of layers. LOL!

    I started off with a great background paper by PsychoZoe from the GingerScraps Essential Basics: Red kit.



    Then I added my photo. I duplicated it 4 times, hid the top 3 layers, and set the bottom layer mode to "Overlay":



    Next, I placed a photo mask (from my PSE 5.0 shapes) above my blended photo:



    Make your next photo layer visable and clip it to the mask:



    Depending on what you are doing, you may not need this next step. But I wanted to add some dimension to my photo so it looked more 3D. So I made my next photo layer visable and cropped all but the very bottom of it. That way, when I do the next step, it will look like the horses are standing on a solid surface.



    Finally we come to most time consuming and tedious step. I made my final photo layer visable and meticulously extracted the horses. I also added a small shadow behind them making sure I followed the same shadow angle as the original photo:



    Finally, I used a template from PhotoCowgirl's Welcome Gift as a guide for adding additional photos and elements. I had taken a photo of the Budwesier Clydesdales truck, so I extracted the title directly from it. Once again, here is the final layout:

    Gorgeous layout! I usually don't do extractions because it is so time consuming but I will have to try it along with the rest of your tutorial. Thanks for sharing.
