Ok ladies, I just finished some screenshots and I hope it makes it clear for you all. When you know it, it's pretty simple.

This was my original photo:


Step 1:
Open a new file of 3600 x 3600 px at 300 dpi
Drag a soft white paper into the layout



Step 2:
Drag your photo into the layout
Make a copy of it and make it invisible



Step 3:
Select the first photo layer
Go to Filter, Stylize, Find Edges
Type Ctrl + Alt + U and change the Saturation to -100



Step 4:
Type Ctrl + M and change the curve as on the image
You get some sort of outlined B&W drawing



Step 5:
Change the layer setting to Darken instead of Normal (the white will dissapear and only the black lines will stay visible)



Step 6:
Type Alt and click on the layer mask button at the bottom
The drawing isn't visible anymore now



Step 7:
Choose a brush with watercolor effect (SS Waterstains)



Step 8:
Start painting back the drawing (make sure you selected the mask and not the drawing miniature on the right side) but don't make hard lines at the border of the photo.
If you painted too much, you can change between black and white to delete parts again or draw back.



Step 9:
Make the photo layer visible again and type Alt and click on the layer mask button at the bottom
The photo isn't visible anymore now.



Step 10:
Select a brush with watercolor effect
Start painting back the drawing (make sure you selected the mask and not the photo miniature on the right side) but keep it all a bit smaller than the drawing layer.
If you painted too much, you can change between black and white to delete parts again or draw back.



Step 10:
Ready!

This is done with Photoshop CS4, but it also can be done with PSE 9 and 10. Those latest versions have the layer mask function. The older versions don't.
Step 3: Don't go to Filter, Stylize, Find Edges but click on the fx button and choose the white button with some colored lines (Outlines). Double click on it. Then convert your layer to B&W and set contrast at 100%.

It really depends on the colors and details in the photo. With some photos you just can't get a nice effect, but with buildings all the windows will look drawn.
But with grass it can end up to busy.
Just try.
