Set the brush in your brush folder - open the tubes in psp.

Open a new white image - 450 x 600.

Copy the frame xmasscrap1 - Past as a new layer.

The frame comes before the elf, later in the lesson we go moving it, so that it looks like the elf steps out of the frame.

Open xmasscrap9.

You see a number of stabbing.

Activate your Selection tool - Select the green stitch and copy.

Make a gradient: Linear - Angle 45 - Repeats 2.
