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!

Please check out my “About my tutorials” page before starting, thank you.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 80, blur 5.

  
Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 550 and fill with white.

Open pp10 and copy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Open el2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, move over to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open el29 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow,

Open el18 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow,

Open el25 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80% and place in position.

Open el6 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55% and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10.

Open pp6 and copy, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection.  Open your tube or the close up if you have one, mirror and paste as a new layer, resize as needed and position inside the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and the frame.  I used the close up resized 75%.

Open el3 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el17 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el16 and paste as a new layer.  Place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open your main tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  If you are using one of Barbara’s layered tubes, duplicate it and close the original, pick your layers and merge visible.  I resized my tube 80%.

Open el19 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el22 and paste as a new layer.  Flip, resize 60%, 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 el9 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el26 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Open el13 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el14 and paste as a new layer.   Also resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el27 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
