Bootsie, all of these images were done in PS2.
I'm glad you enjoyed them.

For the third image I made a custom brush of a deer cutout. The option to create a custom brush is located under the PS edit menu. The only trick to this is that the image you start with can't be larger than 2500 pixel on a side. If it is you'll find the custom brush option is grayed out. Once you've made the brush, however, you reduce the brush size and use a smaller version.

It's best to create a new layer when you want to use the brush. The brush will paint in whatever color you have forward so remember that. If it's white it won't show up on white background. A transparent background will let the background show through.

Using the move tool you'll be able to change the position (you can also transform and apply filter effects) of the brush image. In this example I adjusted the opacities of different layers to get the effects you see here.

The flower image, another cutout, was something from my smart object library. It was simply placed in the image.

I recommend you try custom brushes.
They are fun to use.

How did I miss these?

Beautiful work Virginia, I don't like to besmirch them with my miserly discrimination, but I liked the 2nd one best (but it was a close call).
