15. Use your eraser tool and erase the part of the top preserver layer so that her face is showing.
Do the same thing to the tube layer so that none of it peeks from the bottom of the preservers.
(You can also do this with only one "frame layer"
And your selection tool. But It looked like my tube layer had been cut in two. So I opted for the eraser tool instead)
