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!

Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Paste the mask and resize it 35%.  Select all, float and defloat the mask, make a new layer and paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect and delete the original black mask layer.

Paste element 88, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 1, resize 30% and rotate 10 degrees to the right.  select the interior of the frame, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 20 into the selection.  Deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

Paste element 35, resize 30%, drag below the merged frame layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Pate element 75, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.   Draw an oblong selection around the sheep’s ear and eye  something like my screenshot below, right click and “Promote selection to layer”, deselect the drag the main part of the sheep down below element 35. 




Paste the tube on the top, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 20%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 47, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 60, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 55, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments .

Paste element 93, resize 50%, drag below the tube and apply the drop shadow then erase the bits of grass that are “floating” on the elements, you just want the parts that are around the bottom edges.
