Open e32. Resize by 65%, all layers unchecked. Resize all layers by 75%.
Open e50. Resize by 30%. Paste as a new layer. Duplicate, flip horizontal. Place to the right side of the original. Merge these two layers together.
Open e49. Resize by 30%. Place between the two leaves we just added. Rotate a little to the left. Merge down. Place this leaf cluster so it is slightly above the top of the frame. Duplicate, free rotate, 90 to the right. Place as you did with the top. Repeat two more times. Merge all the leaf layers together.
Duplicate the leaf layer, rotate to the right so that you have a nice circle of leaves. Merge the two leaves layers together & move this layer to the bottom.
