Everything you spawn is also on layer 0 with the background, and behind it in the z-order. Z-order shouldn't matter though, you should really be spawning objects on layer 1 or above, in front of the background. The objects you can see are not spawned and are already on layer 1 so they are visible in front of the background. Check your spawning events where it says layer 0 by default, you can update this to 1 or above.
The default layer 0 always has "Transparent" set to No. By moving a layer under it, you won't see it, unless you fix the values. Set Transparent to Yes on layer 1 and No on layer 0.
Also, it's best to spawn by layer Name, rather than number.
Thanks to both of you i have been able to add the background successfully but there is still an issue with the barrel...earlier the barrel will appear in front of monkey but now its appears behind it.I have already make sure that both are on Main layer and both monkey and barrel are at top of layer
