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 650 pixels and fill with white.

Paste frame 5 as a new layer and resize 50%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below it.  Copy paper 4 and paste it into the selection, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and then move up a little.

Paste your tube as a new layer, place in position, resizing as needed and apply the drop shadow.   I used the smaller tube resized 80%, I also adjusted the vibrancy to -35 (Adjust – Hue and Saturation – Vibrancy).  I checked with CDO regarding their TOU’s on de-saturation of images and they confirmed this was ok.
