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 element 79, resize 55% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 1, resize 35%, mirror and move into position.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and fill the selection with black.  We will come back to this.

Paste element 54, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 67, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the main tube, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 97, position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, resize it 80% and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste spray 3, resize 80%, mirror and move into position.

Paste element 42, resize 15%, drag below the copy of element 97 on the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 77, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 88, resize 70% and position on the right below the standing fox, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and move over to the left.  Duplicate the original copy again, bring it to the top and position in the centre.   Apply the drop shadow to each copy.

Paste element 53, resize 20%, position below all the leaves and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 86, resize 40%, position below element 77 (the banner) and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 62, resize 20%, drag below the turkey, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
