Lets begin!

2. Copy and paste paper 1 as a new layer. Layers, new mask layer, from image. Look for WSL_Mask226 and hit OK. Delete the mask in the layers palette and answer yes to the question asked.

Selections, invert, hit delete on your keyboard, copy and paste a tube of choice as a new layer and position it inside the frame, hit delete on your keyboard once happy with the postition, selections, select none.
