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!

Make another new layer and fill this one with black, paste Mizteeque's mask and resize it 50%,  select all, float and defloat, invert the selection and hit delete on the black layer, delete Mizteeque's mask layer and drag the new black layer below Minja's mask and position so some shows on the right of it.
