deselect
drag black layer below grey layer

On each one in turn

drag this layer below your frame,
copy & paste tube 1 as new layer, resize as necessary, selections invert, hit delete

Repeat for each of the remaining 3 frames using different tubes

rename each frame layer 1,2,3,4

frame 1 - rotate, left 10, position top left, drag down to just above checkered layer
so it pokes out from under the black layer

frame 2 - rotate, right 8, position bottom left, leave it above the grey layer

frame 3 - rotate, right 12, position top right, leave it above the grey layer

frame 4 - rotate, left 7, position bottom right, drag down to just above checkered layer
