Lets Begin :

Start by making a new 1000 X 650 transparent canvas. (I know its a little big, but I like having enough room to work, you will crop it at the end.)

Now   open your P12 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas.

Go to Layers - click Load/Save Mask, then from the slide out menu click Load Mask From Disk.

Now choose a mask of your liking. Then click Load.

Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Mask layer - then click Merge - then from the slide out menu click Merge Group.
Now re-size your mask if needed. I re-sized mine to 65%.
Now still in your layers pallet - right click on your mask layer again (the merged one) then click Duplicate.
Now right click on your Duplicated mask layer & click Merge - then from the slide out menu click Merge Down.
Now your two mask layers should become one layer.

Now using your move tool - move your Mask to the left side of your canvas. 
Go back to your layers pallet - right click on your newly merged canvas layer - then click Duplicate .
Now using your move tool - move your Duplicated Mask element to the middle of your canvas. (Make sure the one end of your duplicated mask is still touching your first mask.)

Now go back to your layers pallet - right click on your Duplicated Mask layer - then click Duplicate .
Using your move tool, move your 3rd Mask element to the right side of your canvas. Again making sure that one end of the 3rd Mask is still touching the 2nd Mask.
