Next select the Pen Tool (P) and try to represent an ornament on the made layer, colored with #790026. The Convert Point Tool will be helpful in making the corresponding corrections on the ornament’s shapes.

Now we should represent a kind of ornament inside the made ball decoration. It’s necessary to choose firstly the Ellipse Tool (U) for representing the basis of the ornament and then press Alt button when cutting with the same instrument an opening on the ball. Press again Alt button and use this time the Rectangle Tool (U) for representing the ornament itself.
