Supplies Needed...

Paint Shop Pro - Version X
Three graphics that are related.
My graphics include,
the bare toes with the daisy, as my main image,
and two of my own photographs of shasta daisies.
I have included my photographs in the zip below.
Beauty Mask.
You may download the mask and the three graphics

*Note* ...Before we begin,
if you decide to use your own images,
you may have to select just the portions that you wish to see.
For example: In my main image, the one with the feet,
I selected just the feet, inverted the selection,
and blurred the grassy bits.
For the daisies, I selected just part of the flowers
to copy and paste for Layer 2.
For layer three, I kept the daisies as they were.
