Next all the layers will be placed above the girl’s layer and the pink spot on her waistline (on the layers’ palette). Create a new layer and apply on it the standard brush to draw a lot of dots. The dots’ colors should correspond to the picture’s layers, meaning that on the bottom part of the picture the dots are violet, on its middle part and the top – they have white color.
