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 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 5 into the selection, apply the mask.

Make another layer, paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect and  apply the mask again.  Merge this second mask layer down onto the first  mask layer.

Paste smudged and resize 95%.

Paste the clock, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste brushed flowers, resize 65% and mirror, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste flowers 2, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste ribbon 1, resize 50%, place in position on the left of the rube, duplicate, move the duplicate over to the right, erase the parts that overlap hiding the join behind the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste string, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste cluster 2 on the top, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste berries, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste flowers, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the bird, resize 20%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and resize it another 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste bling just below the tube, resize 70% and place in position.

Paste light above the tube, resize 70% and place in position erasing the part that shows below the clusters.
