Go to paths and see if you saved as path. Then maybe use the white arrow tool?

You basically use the path as a Mask for layer content. Select the work path, and select a raster (pixel layer) and choose Layer > Vector Mask > Current Path. Or create a Solid Color, Gradient, Pattern to create a fill layer with the work path selected and it will be applied when the fill layer is created.
