My great granddaughter Brooke, fascinated by the sound of wind chimes, reaches up to try and grab them.

4 frames were slightly enlarged and arranged around the edge. Pink paper on top and edges selected with lasso tool and cleared (deleted). A lightened version of the pink paper was chosen with the picker to be used as a stroke around the edge (1 pixel stroke). A drop shadow was given to the pink paper - the color was a very dark version of the pink.
Her hand was selected and cut out and a soft eraser cleaned it up. The photo was cropped below the hand and placed into a frame, The cut out hand was then positioned in place.
