corners to make it fit below the frame.

Your image should look like the one below.

Open silver swirl.png  colorize it.. resize it 80%  C & P it over to above your mask layer duplicate the swirl 2 times... move them around


# 14. Don't forget to erase part of the Snow painting that shows below the frame.

#15. Merge all the layers from the frame on up

You should have just 2 layers now. Hide the top merged layers just have the bottom layer showing...Right on the top of the image  and copy merged.

#16. Open your animation shop Right click on the animation shop desk top and paste as a new animation.

#17.  You should just have one frame there so far

Open the snow animation that was in the supplies zip It has 27 frames to it... duplicate the frame from PSP that's in animation shop till you have

27 frames.  Ctrl + A to select all frames on both animations Click hold and drag F: 1 of the snow animation over to F: 1 of the back ground  frames...

you might have to do this a few times to get it where it starts like its suppose to. if you get it wrong UNDO and re-drag the snow back over there

when it's right... go to PSP hide the bottom layers and unhide the top layers .Copy merged. and over in animation shop right click on the desktop and paste as a new animation.  Duplicate the one frame till you have 27 frames. Select all the frames again

click hold and drag F: 1 one of the top layers over to F: 1 of your bottom layers and snow animation line it up correctly when its lined up let go of mouse.
