Step 3;
Now make a new layer, by clicking the white sheet of paper on the layers menu.
I suggest naming the layer rainbow so you can keep up with which is which.

Step 9;

you can do it with any print, gradient, or color.
The only difference with a color is you use the fill tool to fill in the outline
