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 66 from

Font of choice.



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


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 850 pixels and fill with white.

Open the mask and mirror it.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste paper 1 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize it 90%.

Paste element 46, position roughly in the centre of the mask, duplicate and move the copy down and to the right a bit. You can adjust them later.

Paste element 31, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 85% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 48, resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 21, drag below the tube, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 55% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 65%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 7, resize 40% and duplicate three times, position around the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 32, resize 40% and rotate 90 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 44, resize 35% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 41, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow .

Paste element 9, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 40 on the top,  resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I did a bit of erasing on this shell.

Paste element 33, resize 20%, duplicate, resize the duplicate another 80%, rotate the original copy 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 20, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
