 Start with a canvas 600 by 600
Place paper6 and apply your mask.
Place moon2 to the top left and change the  blend to screen and opacity to 82
Place the fog element to the bottom left on the moon and change the blend to exclusion
Place the ground element to the bottom center of the tag.
Place gravestone1 right under the fog 
Place house1 above this layer aligning the vines on the left to top of the stone.
Resize the stump by 90% and mirror. Place over the house portion of the cluster.
Resize the web by 50% and place to top top part of the stump.
Place your tube leaning against the stump.
Resize the cat and spellbooks by 50%
Resize  the staff by 65% and free rotate it 8 to the left
Free rotate broom2 90 to the right.
 Place skeleton2 behind the house cluster and erase the everything except for the hand.
 Place bird3 on top of the moon.
 Add your name, artist URL/CR and your license number.
Wanna animate this?
Activate bird3 layer and duplicate it. Resize by 80%.
Then duplicate it again and resize it by 40%.
Duplicate it and resize by 80% Now free hand select the wings  and promote layer for each wing using your freehand pick tool move the outer nodes outward this will move the wing up and out like it is flapping. repeat with the other side.Keep duplicating and resizing, moving the wings until your bird is pretty small.
 count those layers now that is how many layers you need to promote or rather duplicate the promoted layers for the elements below
Free hand select the eyes of the cat and promote the layer
Free hand select the orb portion of the staff and promote the layer.
For each duplicated promoted layer of the orb apply Eye Candy HSB Noise with hue and saturation set to 0.Apply to each layer and change the seed,
For the cat promoted layers color select the fur around the eyes then activate the promote layer and flood fill. this will be the closed eye.
Repeat the flood fill for two more layers now using your point to point free hand selection tool . Select the bottom portion of the closed eye just a little from the bottom then hit delete. Repeat with the other layer and choose more of the lid to delete from the bottom.
Next Return the saturation slider to 50 in the HSB noise filter and apply this filter to the rest of the eye layers changing the seed.
 OK close all the promoted layers set aside form the bottom layers. i like working from the bottom to the top.
Merge Visible then copy/paste as a new animation to AS( if that is what you are using to animate)
then come back to PSP unmerge and open the next set layers that were promoted. Select the skeleton hand layer and touch the element with your pointer in PSP hit CTRL and the arrow key at the same time to move the hand back. Repeat this each time you merge.copy/paste to AS
 Once done Change the frame properties to 25 and save as a GIF once all your layers are pasted
Thanks for looking
