The Little Mermaid:: Ariel (first sight)

tutorial #1 :: silence

First full icon tutorial, so bare with me, and it features an image of Michelle Trachtenburg. This tutorial involves quite a bit of steps, but they're not all that complicated (at least I hope so :P). I made this icon in psp7, however it can be easily translated into any other program. Let's get started shall we? First off here's a preview of the image before, and after.

Brush problem. I use PSP9. I have checked the memories, I couldn't find anything, mostly because I think this is just me being dense.
I've downloaded some polaroid/frame type brushes from iconistas. Imported them, there's no problem there. Only when I use them the middle is the heavy colour and the edge is light. So instead of framing the subject they cover it. Is there a setting I should be using or something? I've tried all the blend modes too. It doesn't really look right when i copy and paste either since they have to be resized. It's probably something really simple but I cannot work it out, any help would be appreciated.
Thanks to all who've answered I'm going to try your suggestions, it was much appreciated.

Hey guys, I used a banner tutorial a few months back- okay maybe a year ago, and I can't remember how I made it. I think it came from a tutorial or something. I was wondering if anyone could direct me to that tutorial if any, or any help on how to make it. I feel really dumb, and I'm sorry for the buggage.

Sparkling water?

I use PSPX and AS3 and I have an icon that has a background of water (the sea) and I wondered if there was any way to get the sea to sparkle as if the sun was shining on it?

I have looked all through the memories and couldn't find anything, unless I missed it, and I don't remember a tutorial on it so if anyone could help I'd be eternally grateful. Thank you in advance.

Making brushes.

I looked through the memories but I couldn't find the answer to my question.

I just made some brushes in PSP8 and I'd like to post them on a brush community. However, I can't seem to figure out how to make a .jbr file of the set of brushes. How can I do this?

Thanks for any help!

Out of the blue, when I attempt to boot up PS 7, I get this error:

Unable to continue because of a hardware or system error. Sorry, but this error is unrecoverable.

I've already uninstalled and reinstalled with the same result. The ONLY thing I've done since the last time I booted up PS was install some fonts a friend sent me. Could that be the reason? Could it be something else?

how to get the over lighting away from Mary-Kate's face (on the right) without the same happening to Ash who don't need it? could it get somewhere around the same lighting as on Ashley's face?

plus, how to get the coloring as on my current icon? I know that it's something with brown multiply layer and screen & softlight layers, but it won't work for me. it always come out in to brown/tooless brown/too white (if I desaturate some of the layers) etc. anyone have tutorial for that kind of coloring?
