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!

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste element 44, resize 35%, position above element 1 and position on the left, duplicate, drag the duplicate down and position just above the tube, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 62, resize 50%, position above the top ribbon and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 38 behind the tube, click on the mask, select all, float and defloat the mask, invert the selection and hit delete on the element to remove any flakes outside the main tag, deselect.
