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 85, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 850 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, open the mask, copy it, paste it into the selection and resize it 90%.  You should already have the selection there, float and defloat the mask, open and copy paper 10 and paste it into the selection, deselect and delete the original mask layer.

Paste element 2, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32, resize 45% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 4, resize 45% and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 15, make a new layer below the frame and fill with colour #52412e.  Paste the close up tube, resize 65%, position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and the tube, change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light” and lower the opacity on it to around 75.

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

Paste the main tube, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 35%, drag below the tube and books, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 45%, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 23, resize 40%, drag between the two candelabras, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 29, resize 35% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 35% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18 on the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 25% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
