~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a 700 X 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Frame 2 as a new layer.
Use your Selection Tool set on Ellipse and make a circle to outline the inside of the frame.
TIP: It’s alright if the circle isn’t the correct size or even in the very center of the canvas - we can fix that in a bit!

New Raster layer below the frame.
Flood fill with a gradient.
Deselect.

Click on your gradient on your canvas.
If your circle is too large to too small then resize as needed.
If it’s off centered then simply click on your gradient circle on your canvas and use your up and down and side arrow keys on your keyboard to move the circle into proper position.
See! Told ya we could fix it!

Be sure the gradient layer is highlighted in your layers pallet.
