Clone a big brick wall (even bigger than you think you’ll need; you can Crop it if necessary at the end). Use the Brush Tool to paint shadows on the door.
step 2 of 13
Clone out the letters and enlarge the numbers of the dial pad.
step 3 of 13
Cut out what should be the whole paper boat. Clone out the paper waves.
step 4 of 13
Add a cut-out dial pad with rounded corners. Give it a border to be the housing. (Text on the door helps explain the security pad.)Add the paper boat. Duplicate the layer and blend as Screen to whiten the boat to be more consistent with the bright light of this scene. Add interior and exterior shadows to both to make them more three-dimensional and part of the scene.
step 5 of 13
Add grapevines to the old homestead.
step 6 of 13
Apply Filter/Stylize/Glowing Edges and then Desaturate and Invert. Duplicate the layer and blend as Multiply to intensify lines. Put copy of starting image on top with blend of Pin Light to color scene. Paint the sky aqua on another layer and blend as Linear Light.
step 7 of 13
Cut out the portion of the illustration you want to use. (And darken some of the posts.) Apply Layer Style/Stroke for a stronger outline. Add wires between the posts with the Brush Tool.
step 8 of 13
Cut out bottle and wine glass. Rotate to truly vertical. Clone out all references to Mogen David and put “Old Homestead” on the bottle using Warp Text to match the curvature. Add wine to glass. (Wine surface is resizing of glass rim. Realism is not critical as this will be used in just an illustration.)
step 9 of 13
Add the wine bottle and glass to the illustration with a thick Layer Style/Stroke around each to emphasize that they should be the focus.
step 10 of 13
Create a poster.
step 11 of 13
Adjust positioning and rotate slightly [too square looks fake]. Apply a bit of Filter/Texture/Texturizer so it doesn’t look so smooth and pristine. Add wear (Burn Tool) and tear (masking plus Brush Tool). Corner curls and shadows complete the time-worn appearance. A layer on top of the underlying brick Desaturated with Hard Light blend provides a hint of the uneven surface the poster is pasted upon.
step 12 of 13
Cut out the two shadows. A little Filter/Blur/Gaussian Blur will soften everything.
step 13 of 13
Edit/Transform/Flip Horizontal the two shadows. Use Edit/Transform/Perspective to stretch the scrunched upper bodies to make them appropriate for the brick wall (blend mode Hard Light). Separate distorted segments of the shadows are necessary for the pavement portions.
