The answer is

ELEMENTS

Each rebus-type image

yields a word. Subtracting the letters indicated above yields one or two letters. Each is an element symbol.

The image at the very top

hints that we should draw lines connecting the elements in the table.

Each line of images

forms one letter. Pluses indicate lifting the pen.
