1. Open a new document in Photoshop. Arrange brush layers and photos as desired. At this stage, it is also useful to try out a few different background colours to see what appeals to you.
2. In a separate document, print the photos.
3. On a 12x12 sheet of coloured cardstock (or whatever size your printer will accomodate), print only the brush layers on a white background.
4. Add photos and embellish brush images with gems and flowers.
