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!

Font of choice.



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 65, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask, duplicate and merge the top copy down onto the original

Paste frame 3, resize 60% and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 1, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the right.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below it and paste a different paper into the selection, deselect.   I used paper 5.  Duplicate the frame, mirror it and repeat the above with another paper.  This time I used paper 7.  Apply the drop shadow to each frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

Paste the wordart, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 42, resize 90%, drag below the tube, erase the long piece on the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 60%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 51, resize 40%, drag below both copies of element 15 on the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 34, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
