    If you want to use photoshop to separate the layers by colour then I suggest using the magic wand tool to individually select the colours. From there you can copy and paste them onto new layers. Make new layers by using control-shift-n

    Photoshop has a filter under artistic called cutout in which you can designate the number of colors and the sensitivity of the details. You need to start with a pretty simple picture to make a stencil, but I think if you're good with your brush tool, you can convert it using cutout and touch it up from there to make the stencil shapes. Good luck!

    Every time you select a color in the layers section create new layer before dropping in your color. This will allow you to keep your layers separate and keep your work from getting messed up since you can always just remove a layer. This is the best way to separate layers, just make them as you go.
