~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a transparent 700 X 700 canvas.
Flood Fill white.

Copy and paste Element 23 as a new layer.
Resize 35%
Close out Raster 2
Outline the right side of the element.

Highlight Raster 2
Rename all layers starting at the bottom with the white canvas.

Delete the top layer - you don’t need it any more.

Highlight Raster 2

You’ll end up with only the center of the page.

Open up Raster 1.
Select None.

With Raster 2 still highlighted
Select All/Float/Defloat
Highlight Raster 1 and use the Eraser Tool to erase the center of the cutout area.
Deselect and carefully erase everything leftover in the center.

Using your Freehand Selection Tool, draw around the cutout. It doesn’t have to be neat.
