The result of that should be similar to this:

When you're done, select both ships and then group them (Ctrl/Cmd + G). Name this group to "ships".


Step 7: Add the Floating Swing

Now, we will be adding the mysterious floating swing which would take the travelers to their destination. To start, let's open the stock image "Swing Stock 2" by _____. Next, activate the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M) and use this to select the swing as shown on the image below:

Activate the Move tool (V) and drag the selected swing to our canvas. Position it on the location shown below:

Rename this layer now to "swing".

Next, activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and resize the image as shown below:

Next, we'll make this swing blend in with the rest of the images by lowering its Opacity to give the illusion that it is in a far distance. Change the "swing's" opacity to 50%.

The result:

Now, we will be extending the rope into the far reaches of the sky. To do that, activate the Rectangular Marquee tool (M) and then select the rope of our swing.

Duplicate the selected layer (Ctrl/Cmd + J) and then activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) to resize the rope as shown on the image below:

The result should be similar to this:

Group this layer and rename it now to "Swing".


Step 8: Add the Birds

In this Step, we would be adding the birds. To start, create a new layer above the "swing" group (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and then name this layer "birds".

Once you're done, activate the Brush tool (B) and then right click on the canvas to bring up the contextual menu, once the menu is up, click on the button shown below:

Next, click on Load Brushes:

Locate "bird brushes II" by lpdragonfly to the location you've saved it into. Once open, you'd notice that the brushes you have on the Brush tool's (B) contextual menu are of birds.
