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 750 by 675 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 2 into the selection,  deselect, apply the mask and resize it 95%.

Paste element 43, resize 55% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 40, resize 80%, place in position erasing most of the stalk and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 46, resize 68% and place in position.

Paste element 24, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 33 and resize 38%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below it and paste paper 9 into the select, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into postion.

Paste element 29, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube, desaturate it and resize 32%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 45, resize 40%, mirror and rotate 20 degrees to the right, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 30%, duplicate three times, drag below the violin, mirror/flip the copies, position around the tag and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 50 on the top, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 35, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 8%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers then crop your tag and add your copyright information and text.


Open Simone’s animation in Animation Shop.

In Paintshop, starting from the top, close off all your tag layers down to and including the tube and merge the remaining layers visible.  Copy the merged layer and paste it in Animation Shop as “A new animation”.  Simone’s animation has 24 frames so you  need to duplicate your tag layer until it also has 24 frames.  Activate the animation, go to Edit – Select all – Edit – Copy, click on the first frame of your merged layer and go to Edit – Select All, right click on this first frame, select“Paste into Selected Frame” and paste the animation onto your tag. 

Back in paintshop, close off the merged layer and open the top layers, right click, select “Copy Merged” and paste in Animation Shop as “A new animation”, duplicate until you again have 24 frames, select all these frames and copy them and paste them on your tag as you did before.

Check your animation and, if you are happy with it, run it through the Optimization Wizard and save as a gif.
