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 mask 0389 by

Font is




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


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 800 and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 5 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask, resize it 9%% and mirror it.

Paste element 24, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 50%, rotate 20 degrees to the right and move into position.  Paste paper 5 below this element, resize it 70% and position in the element getting some of the creases in the paper showing, select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, invert it and hit delete on the paper.  Paste the tube, position in the element and again hit delete, deselect.   Change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste element 13, resize 55% and move into position.  Paste paper 7 as a new layer below this element, resize it 40% and move into position, select the interior of the element, expand the selection and invert it as before and hit delete on the paper.  Paste the tube again but this time mirrored, place in position and again hit delete, deselect.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light” as before and apply the shadow to the frame.

Paste the main tube, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 80%, drag right down to just above the mask and place at the top, duplicate, mirror and flip the duplicate and then rotate it 20 degree so the right, position at the bottom and apply the drop shadow to each. 

Paste element 26 above both sets of frames, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 60% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, resize 60% and rotate 40 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32, resize 70% and rotate 40 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 34, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21, resize 70% and rotate 45 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4 on the top, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14 again, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 35% and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22a, resize 33% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
