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!

  1. Love your blog and visit often. Popped in this morning to have a mooch and thought "ooo thats pretty, wonder what kit was used" then read it was one of mine LOL. So glad you liked the kit. I find it very difficult to tag my own kits so I just love this tut and had to give it a go right away. Thanks for all your great tuts xx
