About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am Vivienne, living in the UK and married with a son who now lives in Perth, Australia and a daughter who has given me two gorgeous grandsons! Paint Shop has been my hobby for more years than I can remember and I love making tags. I have always loved doing tutorials written by others and a couple of years ago started writing them myself. As well as tag tutorials, I also have a Tips and Tricks page where you will find tutorials on basic Paint Shop techniques. I hope you enjoy my blog and have fun with my tutorials. Please be sure also to check out the Tag Gallery and see some of the awesome results to the tutorials!

Unless otherwise stated, I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 650 pixels and flood fill with white,.

Open pp3 and copy.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the section, deselect and apply the mask.

Open el22 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and apply a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 50, blur 5 then reapply the drop shadow changing the vertical and horizontal to -2.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change the settings).   I re-sized my tube 40% and did some re-colouring (check out my Tips and Tricks page for info on re-colouring). 

Open el30 and paste as a new layer.  Flip, resize 60%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 85, blur 3.

Open el10 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el2 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el4 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el1b and paste as a new layer.   Mirror and flip, resize 80%, drag down below el4, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open el26 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el23b and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el23 and paste as a new layer.   Mirror, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el7, paste as a new layer and drag up so it’s just below the tube.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el24, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open el12 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el27 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open el1b again and paste as a new layer.  Flip, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el28 and paste as a new layer.  Flip, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el5 and paste as a new layer.   Mirror, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open el21 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el11 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
