For Output To, choose New Layer with Layer Mask. Click OK. If the mask needs any clean up, go ahead and use the Brush tool to paint white to restore missing areas, black to remove excess. Save as Model.psd.
Place a mixed media texture of some sort above the model and confirm. Set the blend mode to Difference. Opt/Alt-click the Add Layer Mask icon in the Layers palette to add a mask hiding it all. Select the Brush tool. With a soft, round brush at 70% Opacity, paint white in the mask to reveal areas.
Select the background layer. Use the Ellipse too (set to Shape in Photoshop) to create several white and black circles (hold Shift to constrain in Photoshop). Set to the Overlay blend mode. Create a prominent circle to the left of the model with the colour #f696a6 and use the Normal blend mode.
Select the model layer. Place your halftone image over the top of your image. Scale down and position before confirming. Apply a layer mask with the icon in the Layers palette. With a soft, round brush at 60% Opacity, paint black in the mask to tone down.
Continue to place the other halftone images. Reduce Opacity, apply layer masks and paint with black to hide areas. Duplicate as needed. Place another halftone pattern over the picture and set to Darken. Mask out areas so it only affects the face.
