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!

Paste spray 5, drag below the mask and place in position.

Paste frame 5a on the top, and resize 60%, select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, paste paper 6 below the frame,  resize it 60% and position in the frame, invert the selection, hit delete on the paper and deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

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

Paste element 43, resize 60%, position below the merged frame and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 40%, position above the merged frame layer and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 47, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 49, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 57, resize 60%, duplicate and mirror the copy, position behind the dog erasing the parts that overlap hiding the join behind the dog and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 44 on the top, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 6 and place in position.

Paste element 61, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 37% and rotate 90 degrees to the left, place in positon, apply the drop shadow and erase the tip so it looks like it buried in the ground.

Paste elements 37, resize 30% and apply the drop shadow, place in position and again erase a little of the base.

Paste element 36, resize 25%, apply the drop shadow, position and erase the base as before.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.
