Insert now the set of drums, cutting them out preliminary (I used this picture from SXC. I would like to thank the author of this picture):

Make a copy of the layer with the drums, placing the copy lower than the previous drums’ layer (on the layers’ panel). Using the Free Transform option, change a little the copy’s sizes:

Next we need to change a little the color nuance of the guitar as for it to be appropriate with the general picture’s color nuance. In this case we click on the bottom part of the layers’ panel on Create new fill or adjustment layer>Hue/Saturation

    Haha…neat trick with the free transform tool for making the photo look like an old torn peice of paper. Now I know how to use layer masks. Useful tool for some other projects! I think I’m going to use this tutorial to enter this poster contest out where I live.
