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 and horizontal 5, opacity 80, blur 5.


Open a new transparent canvas 800 by 650 pixels and fill with white.

Open pp1 and copy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize your canvas width to 660 pixels keeping the mask centred

Open el3 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 65% and move up, we will come back to this later.

Open el34 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60% and position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open el20 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el13, paste as a new layer.   Resize 60% and duplicate, mirror one copy and place both flowers into position.   Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open el15 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow,.

Open el33 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el32 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open the tube, duplicate and close the original, pick your layers, copy merged and paste as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el19 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 25%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el35 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate,  place both elements in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open el31 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Open the close up tube and mirror it, copy and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, drag down below el3 (that’s the frame) and position inside it.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, invert it, click back on the tube to activate it and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and change the blend mode to overlay.  Now open pp5 and paste as a new layer below the close up tube,  resize 90%, adjust the paper until you get a good colour on the tube, then select the interior of the frame and delete the excess paper as you did the tube.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open el2 and paste as a new layer making sure it’s on the top.   Resize 40% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el26 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el28 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
