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!

Please check out my “About my tutorials” page if this is the first tutorial of mine you have followed, thank you.

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.
 

Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and fill with white.

Copy paper 4, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection and apply DDMask 1, do not deselect.  Resize 105%.

Copy paper 6, make any layer on you canvas and paste this paper into the selection, deselect and apply mask 15.  Resize 95%.

Paste element 7 as a new layer, resize 70% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27 as a new layer, resize 70% and place in position.  Select the interior with your magic wand and expand the selection by 5, copy paper 1 and paste it as a new layer below the element, resize the paper 40% and position it in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.

Paste element 16 as a new layer, resize 70%, drag below the merged layer, duplicate, mirror and flip the duplicate, place both copies into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste your tube as a new layer on the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 70%.

Paste element 2 as a new layer, resize 70% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13 as a new layer, resize 70% and position to the right of the tube, duplicate, resize the duplicate 70% again, mirror it and position on the left.  Apply the drop shadow to each layer.

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 70%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23 as a new layer, resize 70% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23 as a new layer, resize 70% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20 as a new layer, resize 30%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4 as a new layer, resize also 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
