Step 6 (Creating ground)
In this step we are going to create ground. Open the fairy house stock image on the document. Convert it to a smart object. Scale and locate it where needed. Place this fairy house layer between the first two foreground groups and the second two groups.
Duplicate the fairy house layer (Ctrl+J). Give this duplication layer of the smart object some filters by going to Filter > Filter Gallery
The result should look like this:
Give another smart filter:
Set the duplication layer’s blending to normal at 55% opacity:
Duplicate the second fairy house layer and set it to soft light layer at 30% opacity. Select all the fairy house layers and hit Ctrl+G to group them. Name this group ground
Step 7 (Adjustment layer)
Now go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation to give an adjustment layer above all the fairy house layers within the ground group layer.
Mask on the red marked parts of the hue/saturation layer and set its blending to normal at 80% opacity:
Step 8 (masking part of the ground)
We need to hide the upper part of the fairy house images in the ground group. We just need the ground of it. To achieve this, we will mask the ground group. As we can see the red marked part is the area to be masked (hidden). Use a very soft round brush to mask the area.
Here is the result should look like.

Step 9 (Preparing a stone house)
Open again the fairy house stock image. Crop the stone house of the image from its background. Place the house between the foregrounds on the ground having been created earlier. Convert the house layer to a smart object. Take a look at the screenshot below for your inspiration:
Step 10 (Smart filter on the house)
We also will give this house some smart filters as we have given ones to the other objects in this scene. Here are the smart filter should be given:
again, the same amount of Custom:
Give this smart object surface blur as well
This is the result will look like:
We need to hide the effect of the smart filters on the stone house building by masking them. Click the smart filter mask thumbnail and mask the red marked part of the house area:
Finally, give the stone house layer a layer mask and mask the edges of the image to make it blended well with the surrounding:
Step 11 (Creating the top part of the house building)
In this step we will add more shape on the top of the stone building. To achieve this, cut out the top of the guiding. Then, alter the shape of the cut out by warping it. .
Add the shape to the top of the building:
