Copy and paste the Tree as a new layer. Resize 50%. Position to the left of the window frame. Duplicate and move to the opposite side of the frame and move behind it.

Copy and paste Fence 3 as a new layer. Resize 25%. Duplicate 3 times and line them up in a blended line near the bottom of your canvas. Merge visible all the fence layers.
