Copy and paste the Bamboo Frame as a new layer. Resize 15%.
Click inside the frame with your Magic Wand.
Select/Modify/Expand by 4. Copy and paste your image beneath the frame layer. Invert/Delete/Select None. You can use your Target brush to color the flowers in the corners to a color of your choice if you wish.

Close out your white canvas and merge visible.

Copy and paste the Palm Tree as a new layer behind the frame layer. Resize 40%. Colorize if you wish. Duplicate and move down slightly and to the right so that tips of the palm fronds peek out from behind the frame. Once happy, duplicate and mirror.

Copy and paste as new layers Shells 1, 2, and 3. To each one resize 10% and again 80%. Sharpen each 3 times and place where you choose.

Copy and paste as a new layer one of the flip flops. Use your Target Tool to colorize if you wish. Resize 15%. Free rotate left 20 degrees. Sharpen. Duplicate/mirror and place where you choose.
