This method will depend on your version but definatly works for version 7.

  1. Open up the image you want to do the sparkles on.
  2. Select the Brush tool (not the pencil tool)
  3. Click on the Brushes at the top.  Then click on the little arrow ">" to show the menu.
  4. Click on "Assorted Brushes" near the bottom of the popup menu.
  5. Click on OK in the Dialog box that comes up.
  6. On the Brushes tab, click on the 6th brush down, it should be an X type brush.
  7. Enable the Airbrush by clicking on its button near the top.
  8. Move the mouse onto the canvas and click the left mouse button, the longer you hold the mouse button down, the bolder the X will become.  Light touches are normally the best to apply.  You might want to do this on a new layer above the other layers.

I've put up a samle of what the effects can look like, use them in moderation though.

That should give you the effect you're looking for. Enjoy.
