1. Create an Out of Bounds Effect. Create the illusion of your subject(s) coming out of a frame by creating an out of bounds effect.
Try This. Place a .jpg frame above your image. Add a Layer Mask to the frame and use a variety of brushes to "erase" portions of the frame to create an out of bounds effect as outlined in AnnaBlendz No. 3 Blending with Brushes. You can also position the frame behind one or more transfers to achieve a similar effect.
2. Create a Custom Cast Shadow. Add depth & dimension to your layout by adding a cast shadow to the focal image.
See Tutorial | Creating a Custom Cast Shadow for further guidance in creating custom cast shadows.
Try This. Add a LightLeak over the shadow, apply the Color Burn Blending Mode to give the shadow more texture and dimension.
3. Create a Sticker WordART Title. Place your WordART title and add a Stroke and a Drop Shadow Layer Styles to the layer. Go to Layer>Layer Style>Drop Shadow/Stroke.
Try This. Experiment creating a custom WordART sticker using Spring WordArt No. 3.
