How to Create a Night Jungle Scenery in Photoshop
step11a
Add the shape to the top of the building:
step11b
Mask the edges of the shape to make it blended well with the main building. After finding a good result, group the layers. Name the group main stone house.
step11c

Step 12 (Adding a door)

In this step, we will add a front door to the stone building we have created. Open the witch house stock image to the document. Place it where needed and also scale its size. Make sure to locate this image layer above the stone house layer within the main stone house group in the layer panel.
step12a
Mask unneeded parts of the house to hide them and only the door part of the house is revealed.
step12b
The door is a little bit dark. We need to lighten it a bit more. Here is what to do: create a new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N) above the door layer within the group. Make sure to create a clipping mask to this layer. Fill this new layer with 50% grey and set its blending to overlay at 100% opacity. With a very soft round brush, stroke white color to the areas to be lightened. Here is the normal blending of this layer will look like:
step12c
And here is the result after the layer is set to overlay at 100% opacity:
step12d

Step 13 (Giving highlight to the stone house)

Now processed to give some highlight to the edges of the stone house. Create another new layer above the main building layer within the stone house group. Give this layer a clipping mask. Make sure to choose white color for the foreground. Hit B on the keyboard to activate brush tool. With a very soft round brush set to 10-20% opacity, stroke the edges of the building to give it highlight. Here is the result should be:
step13a
We are almost done with the stone house. Finally, to make the house blended better, reduce the opacity of the house group layer to just 75-80% opacity:
step13b

Step 14 (Adding path)

Now we will add a path to the scene. Open the garden stock image on the document. scale the size and locate it in front of the stone house.
step14a
Mask the rest of the image so that only the path is revealed:
step14b

Step 15 (adding highlight to the foregrounds)

By consideration that the light comes intensely from the back centered source, it will be casted on some areas in the foregrounds. To define this phenomenon, we will add some highlight on the areas where the light should be casted. Go back to the foreground 1 group. Then, create a new layer above the foreground layer within the group. Remember to create a clipping mask for this layer and name it highlight. Choose a very soft round brush set to 10-20% opacity. now, with the highlight layer selected, paint soft white color on the edges of the foreground which is marked in blue as shown in the screenshot:
step15a
Proceed to create some highlight on the other foregrounds:
step15b

Step 16 (preparing a tree house)

We will add a tree house to the main document. Here are the step we should do to prepare the house. Firstly, open again the fairy house stock image. Cut out the stem part featured in the image. Use Lasso Tool for this purpose.
step16a
Also, open the garden stock image and cut out one of the shape (marked in blue) featured in the image:
step16b
Open another stock image. Cut out the door of the image. Try to create the shape of the door as the one shown in the screenshot:
