Open your mask & PP4. Paste your paper as a new layer above the background layer. Apply your mask, merge group.

Copy & paste your tube, resizing slightly. Move this layer above the smaller square layer, arrange to your liking. On the green frame layer, use your magic wand & click inside the frame. Selections, modify, expand by 3. On the tube layer, selections, invert & press delete. Deselect.
Duplicate your tube layer. Apply a gaussian blur, 3.00. Set the blend mode to Screen, 100. On the original tube layer, set the blend mode to Luminance (L), 30.
Paste your tube again, but this time above the bird layer. Resize as necessary, placing to the left side of the squares.

Add your name, copyrights, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layer, then merge visible. Save as a PNG.
