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!

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


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 15 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask with the “Invert mask data” box checked and resize 95%.

Paste frame 8c, resize 45% and move into position, select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the element and fill with colour #252525, deselect.  We will come back to this.

Paste word art 1, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, drag behind the frame and paper, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, drag above the frame and word art, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 88, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste elements 18 and 41, resize each 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow/

Paste element 27 on the top, resize 20% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 56, resize 20% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste element 19, resize 30%, duplicate, place the original copy behind the tube on the right, mirror the duplicate and position behind the make up erasing the stalk and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 22, resize 30% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 6 just above the mask, resize 80% and position so some shows at the bottom.

Paste element 39, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube again between the frame and the paper below it, place in position, select the interior of the frame and expand it as before, invert the selection and hit delete on the tube, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and change the blend mode on the tube to “Soft Light”.

Pate spray 10 on the top, resize 70% and place in position.
