Creating an Instagram story from scratch

For the first project, we will be creating an Instagram story for a fictitious fashion e-commerce company called Marley OOTD (OOTD stands for outfit of the day). We will add a design asset, Dots, as the backdrop. We will find an image from Adobe Stock and remove the background. We will then duplicate the masked image and create multiple layers. We will add text and then incorporate the masked image with the text, where we will have the model’s legs looping through some of the letters, to create a 3D illusion. The following figure shows what the final image will look like:
