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 Frame _1b and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45% and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame as before but this time expand the selection by just 5, make a new layer as before  and paste Paper_5 into it.    Undo the mirror on your tube and paste it again on your canvas, resize 55% and position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow as before.
