Double-click on the thumbnail of the Brush you want to use to make it active.
Use the left and right Bracket Keys ([, ]) on your keyboard to make your Brush the size you want it to be.
Add a new Layer in the Layers Panel by clicking on the "add a new layer" icon in the panel.
The Foreground Color is the top large square of the 2 overlapping squares under the Toolbox.
Make it white by first clicking on the tiny overlapping squares to the lower-left of the larger squares. Or use the keyboard shortcut by pressing the letter "d" on your keyboard.
Then click on the double-headed curved arrow to the upper-right of the larger squares. Or use the keyboard shortcut by pressing the letter "x" on your keyboard.
Click once where you want to add a Brush mark (in this case some bling).
Continue adding more Brush marks if you want. You can choose different Brushes from the pop-up if you want.
