Open the file “Palm”. Select all and copy/paste in our scene. Place the palm on the island and paint some shadow on an underneath layer. Clip a Curves Adjustment Layer to the palm in order to make it look greener.
Create a new layer and paint some rope connecting the boat to the palm with the standard black chalk brush.
Press Ctrl + Shift + Alt + E to make a new layer from all the visible layers and apply a 20px Gaussian Blur (Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur). Change the blending mode of the layer to Soft Light and lower the Opacity to 39%. This will slightly increase the contrast and give our scene a dreamy look.
Open the file “Nebula”. Select all and copy paste in our scene. Change the blending mode of the nebula to Soft Light and lower the Opacity to 39%. Add a layer mask and hide some of the middle nebula effect.
