Let's Begin!


Open up a new image I like to use a tagger size of 460 x 460
Flood fill white
Open up frame 2 and right click copy, and right click paste as new layer, close off original, resize to your liking, using your magic wand click inside the frame and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 5, then open up paper 11 and right click copy, right click paste as new layer, place the paper below the frame, then go to Selections-Invert-hit delete on your keyboard then Deselect.

Open up element 16 (the blue wave) and right click copy, right click paste as new layer and place under the frame but above the paper, (see example above) resize to your liking

Open up element 43 (the lantern lights) and right click copy, right click paste as new layer, position and resize to your liking, now duplicate 2 times, you should have 3 total. Close off the original and duplicate 3. On the Duplicate 2 lantern layer, using your free hand selection tool, on the free hand setting, circle around every other lantern, to select around multiple lanterns, hold down the shift key. Then go to Adjust-Brightness/Contrast-Brightness and Contrast-and use these settings
Deselect. Close off the duplicate 2 and open duplicate3, and do the same thing but on the alternating lanterns, and use the same setting for the brightness and contrast. Close off Duplicate 3 and open the original
Add any other elements you want making sure you copy and paste each one as a new layer

Open up paper 8 and right click copy, right click paste as new layer, and add your mask, invert your mask.
