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 700 by 700 and fill with white.

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

Paste tree 2, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste mead lawn, resize 80%, drag below the arch and place in position.

Paste mesh, resize 60%, duplicate, flip one copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste grass 1 on the top, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste bottle, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste grass 2, resize 60% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
