A little detail that can make an element look well finished can be an even groove all around it. Whether you are using a plastic object or a wooden one or even a metal piece, that fine groove can be a great detail to add.
This script for Paintshop Pro will do that for you. It will also measure your element to suggest a specific width based on the element you want to use.
In addition, since a groove can look so good on a wooden piece, the script offers six wood textures you can use to convert your shape.
You can get this script in the store: Groovy.
For a chance to win this script, add something in the comments below as in what element you can imagine adding a groove to or turn to wood. I'll announce a winner in the newsletter, next week.

For fun, i added some interesting details to the candy cane element. How did i get those stripes? Simple: once i had selected the area for the stripes, i played with the brightness and contrast to get a different coloring. I could also have used a hue change instead.
Use those elements as a base to decorate them even more. Add glitters to the star, or lights to the tree. Add a string, a ribbon or a bow to attach them to your layout. Change the color too if you prefer. What will you do?
