Go to your layers pallet - move your Tree02 layer down & put it right above your Frame02 layer.

I clicked on time, positioned my grass, then go to your layers pallet - duplicate your grass 2 times - then position each one next to the other to cover the front of your frame.
Then merge those 3 grass layers together so they become one.
Position to your liking. Then you might have to move your Grass layer down in your layers pallet so it is under the elements so it isn't covering them.
