#1. Open paper_14.jpg  Shift + D to duplicate.. close the original.. the duplicated one is now your working image.

#2. Apply the mask that was in the supplies zip to the paper using the settings below..

Merge/ merge group

#3. Open paper_11.jpg and drag its layer over to your working image.  Apply the same mask to the new paper layer.

Merge/ merge group

#4. Use your deformation tool to turn the top paper layer like it shows below

#5. Go to image/ canvas size  900 x 900 center justify

#6. Open element44.png copy and paste it over to your working image.

Open element 7.png resize it 75%

Open element 14.png resize 55%

Open element 39.png resize 55%

Open element 1c.png resize 75%

Open element 45.png resize 60% put this puddle's layer below element 44.png, where the right frog is

Use your deformation tool to pull out the corners of both mask layers.. want them larger but not too large.

Here below is the placement of the elements.

#7.  On the water puddle that you have under the right frog... Duplicate the layer 3 times.. so you have 4 layers of it.

..You're going to resize the top 3 layers but never the bottom layer. You layer palette should look like mine below

Resize Water puddle #3  80%  resize water puddle #2  75%  water puddle 1  70%

Note: when you resize each of the puddles.. it moves them where they aren't in the center... you will have to

make sure they are lined up on top of each other.

don't resize the original puddle

#8. Open your animation shop. For the first set... hide the water puddle 1 & 2 just have the original puddle and puddle 3 showing also the bottom mask layers

and the top layers showing.. right click on the top of your image and COPY MERGE

over to animation shop and paste as a new animation..

Back to PSP and hide water puddle 3 and UN hide puddle 2 and the top and bottom layers are still showing too.

back to animation shop and paste behind current frame

in PSP hide puddle 2 and unhide puddle 1  the top and bottom layers are still showing.. COPY MERGE

back to animation shop and paste behind current frame.. you should have 3 frames to your animation now..

Ctrl + A to select all frame... right click and go to frame properties and set the speed to 20 or 25.. which ever you like..

Check your animation.. if it looks like you want.. Save As a GIF...tada your done!

Toodles till next time
