(Doing this is for the one and only Rosh )
It's pretty simple and I'm explaining like everything. You do not have to follow each and every step of this tutorial. Feel free to improvise and experiment.
Step 1: Open a 600*300 canvas.
Step 2: Fill it with a color of your choice. I'm going for #d49ba8.
Now I'm going to use two images of Shay Mitchell. I've already cut them from the background. (You can also search google for pngs.)
Step 3: I placed the first image.
(Cough, now comes the blending)
Now I'm gonna add a layer mask. Foreground color is black (it's gonna stay the same for all the masking in this tutorial). Brush around the corners of the image. It looks like this.
Go here if you want to see my exact mask.
Step 4: I'm using this image of pine trees (found it from google).
I add it between the big image and the small, resize it a bit. I turn it into black and white (Alt+Shift+Ctrl+B). Now I place it like this. Layer Mode is color burn, opacity 55%.
Step 5: Now I'm gonna add a layer mask. Then I pick a soft round brush around 200 px. I change the opacity to 80% and paint. I paint over the edges. And also on the shoulder because it looked quite ugly.

Step 6: I add another image.
Step 6: Create a new layer. Fill it with a lighter shade of the same hue. I'm using #ead9dd.
Step 7: Pick a soft round brush. (200px). I paint over my layer so that her face is visible. It approximately looks like this.
My layer mask looks like this
Now we're gonna learn a cool text effect. That's in the next post.
