This is a very simple background that can be modified in lots of ways!

To complete this tutorial you'll need the following supplies

FM Paint Engine - here

My glitter PE preset - here

The image I used is here

The eBook of this tutorial is here

** I used PSP9 for this tutorial, but I'm sure this can be done with any version **

OK - lets get started

1. Open a copy of the image you want to make into your background - resize to around 200 pixels

2. Apply seamless tiling with the default settings

3. Apply FM Paint Engine with my glitter preset

4. If you sharpen your tile your glitter will be more enhanced as shown below

5. You can use FM Tile Tools - Blend Emboss to get the effect below

6. You can also animate your tile by duplicating your layer 3 times - and add noise with the settings below to each layer, save as .psp and take into animation shop

7. Apply seamless tiling again and save your tile

That's all there is to it!  We're done!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial ;)
