First off you want to make sure you have something ready to frame.  For this tut I am using the wolf and your free to use it to follow along.  Just right click on it and copy it to your C drive.


 1.  If your going to use the image above then pull it up into PSP right click on were it says background and click on promote the background layer.

2.  From your image chose a light color for your foreground and a dark color for your background. For the image above my foreground color is : #c1cbe1  and my background color is: #51402b . I will refer to light color and dark color through out this lesson so note its in your materials layers that you have already set up.

3. Go to image/Add border/5 and in your light color.

25. Go to image mirrow your accent will now be on the right side like so:

26. Duplicate the mirrored accent and go to image/flip.  Your accent will now be below the top one like so:
