Set your foreground and background to #FFFFFF(White).

Select your Preset Shapes and choose a flower shape. I chose

Convert to Raster. Using your Magic Wand click on the canvas to select

your flower. Selections-Invert.

Add a new Raster Layer.

Use your Selection tool to add a small circle in the middle.

Floodfill with white and use a BladePro preset that you like.

It is best to choose something bright and gem like.

You may prefer to set a jewel tube in the center.

When you are satisfied, merge visible layers and tube.

I have provided the pearl and the gold link for

you to use if you require them.

Set your tube to 45%. When you make images small they

lose some of their clarity and colour, so when I completed

my decoration I used the Effects-Enhance Photo-Automatic Saturation

with these settings.

Put each of your first four gems on a separate layer then

X out the egg layer and Merge visible when you are pleased with

the placing of your gems.

This way you can decorate in groups of four.

I did the same with my pearls.

The pearl ornament at the top is optional. I

wanted to place something at the top to just finish

my egg.

If you have tubed it, place it on a new Raster layer

and posistion it in the middle.

Otherwise activate the ornament by clicking on it.

Copy then Paste as a new layer.

When you have decorated your egg merge visible layers and SAVE.

I hope you have enjoyed making this egg.
