Need ideas for exterior window trim

Hey all,

I recently put up Milgard retrofit windows. I removed all of the existing wood trim around the old aluminum windows. The old trims were made out of 4 pieces of rough textured wood that created borders around the windows.

The new windows have a trim but I want to add more to it. There is also a small gap between the new window trim and the wood sheathing. Is there anything that I can do myself to trim around the new windows? The gap should close itself with the new trim.

Thank you in advance. I hope I was clear in explaining things.

Wood trim comes in a variety of shapes, but consider vinyl or composite. Also available is several shapes, it will not rot, and is usually paintable, although it does not have to be painted.
