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!

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 1 into the selection, apply mask 3 and resize it 85%.

Make another layer, paste the paper into the selection again, deselect,  apply mask 1 and resize it 95%.

Paste element 53, resize 45%, duplicate twice, mirror one duplicate, place the three turrets into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 61, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14a, resize 70% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 7b, resize 40%, mirror,  rotate 10 degrees to the right and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below it and fill with black, paste your tube, resize as needed and position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Merge the tube down onto the black layer and apply the Mo’ Jellyfish filter with the tile size set to 43, offset set to 245 and shading set to 135.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.  I resized my tube 80%.

Paste the tube again, resize, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  This time I resized 60%.

Paste element 3, resize 35% and position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left, apply the drop shadow to each.
