resize all layers 85% go to image/ canvas size 900 x 900
fix the white background
layer by filling it with white
Duplicate the mask layer.. bring
one up to left and one down to right. You will have to crop
some.. but the image is

cup of coffee... Drag F: 1 of the smoke over to F: 1 of your working
