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!

You will need my mask 0007

Font of choice.



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal  5, opacity 85, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 7 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize 95%.

Paste spray 2, resixe 70% and place in position.

Paste element 20, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 80, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 10, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 85, resize 50% and move into position.  Click with your magic wand anywhere on the canvas outside of the element to make a selection, invert the selection and contract it by 10, make a new layer below the element and paste paper 9 into it.    Open the tube,  mirror the copy without the wings, paste it as a new layer on your canvas, resize 90%, position in the element, invert the selection, hit delete to remove the excess tube and deselect.    Apply the drop shadow to the frame and lower the opacity on the tube to around 60.

Paste element 84 on the top,  resize 50% and place in position.  Open your eraser, set the size to 100 and opacity to 10 and dab around the top hard edge of the element to blend it in.

Paste the main tube, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 77, resize 25%, drag below the tube and position on the right, duplicate, mirror and flip the copy and position it on the left below window/tube/paper layers, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 72, resize 27%, position behind the main tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23b, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 35, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 54b  on the top, resize 60% and rotate 130 degrees to the right.  Position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and duplicate it again, place both the copies on the left, erase any stalks that show and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 62, resize, 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 20% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 67, resize 20%, drag below the telephone, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13 on the top, resize 22%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 64, resize 15%, drag below the candle, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 17, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers now and make any adjustments.

Paste element 83, resize 85%, drag it right down to just above element 20 (the wall), place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10 on the top, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2e, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2, resize 17% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 88, resize 30%, duplicate twice, mirror and flip one copy and flip  another, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.
