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 and fill with white.

Paste element 2 as a new layer,  resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6 as a new layer and resize 55%.  Select the interior of the tyre with your magic wand, expand the selection by 30 and make a new layer below it.  Copy paper 3 again and paste it into the selection, deselect.   Apply the drop shadow to the tyre,  merge it down onto the paper and place in position.

Paste element 10 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8 as a new layer, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 65%.
