Very confusing instructions.... I dont get it. Why not show the screenshot of the tools.

I did everything that was told, and ended up with a brown background #633100. moved it up and down to be before duplicate layer and my subject has the background not what I see above.

Why are instructions designed for other instructors and not for students? Way too confusing.
