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!

You will need mask 84 by
And mask 3 from set 165 by

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 2 into the selection, deselect, duplicate it and close the copy off for now,  apply Weescotlass’ mask to the original and resize 95%.  Open the closed copy, apply Rachel’s mask and resize 90%.

Paste element 58, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 60, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 92, resize 40% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 41, resize 30% and duplicate.  Position one copy on the left behind element 58, one copy on the top on the right and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 28, resize 25%, position above element 58 and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 69 on the top, duplicate and erase one cross of each copy so you have them on separate layers, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 76, resize 30%, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 99, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 38, resize 8%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 49, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 86, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 94, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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