Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.
Let's get started!
Open a new canvas 950 x 950 pixels with a white background
Open element 86 copy and paste as a new layer, resize 80%
click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 4 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard,
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 65%
arrange in your frame
erase the bits that hang out of your frame where you don't want them
Now add your elements
element 177 resize 120% arrange above tube layer, duplicate and drag one layer below the frame and background paper, now take your eraser tool and erase on the top copy right where it touches the frame on the top left corner. Erase where it goes over her face and wing and her one arm by her wing
Now it should look like it goes over the frame on the bottom and left and under the frame on the top and the right side
