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!

You will also need a mask, I used mask 230 by

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


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 10 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste element 14 as a new layer, resize 85% and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, resize 60% and move a little up and left.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below it, copy paper 5 and paste it into the selection, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.

Paste the tube as a new layer, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19 as a new layer, resize 25%, drag below the tube and duplicate, rotate the original 20 degrees to the left and the copy 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 21 as a new layer, resize 60% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17 as a new layer,  resize 80% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16 as a new layer, resize 45% and place in position.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection as before, make a new layer below it and fill with black, do not deselect.

Paste the tube again but this time mirrored, position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.   Lower the opacity of the tube to around 60, merge it down onto the black layer and apply Tramages “Mo Jellyfish” filter on the default settings.   Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste element 3 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5a as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
