vintage collage design

First I found a background I wanted to use for my picture. I opened the image in Photoshop and copied it to my design document. I resized it and changed the opacity to 60%, to make sure that my background is white. I chose the Rounded Rectangle Tool (U) and created a rounded rectangle with a black color. I created a Layer Mask. After that, I selected the Brush Tool. I set the color to black and used some brushes to erase parts of the black rectangle. I used brushes from the "Grunge Brushes by Ardcor”. Next I selected a picture of the moon, then cut and pasted it in my design. Next I found my dark princess and did the same to her as I did the moon. I cut and pasted her in to my design. Then I took a picture of dark water and cut and pasted that in. Next, I moved the layers around so that the dark princess was in front of the water so it looks as if she was sitting on the water.
I like this picture because it looks as if the girl is sitting on the black water on a moonlit night. It has a Halloween feeling to it. It was a spooky sight. This would be good for like a Halloween invite or poster.
