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!

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize it 90%.

Paste arch and resize 50%.  Click anywhere on your canvas outside of the arch with your magic wand to make a selection, invert the selection, contract it by 10, make a new layer below the arch, paste paper 7 into it and deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

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

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

Paste web, resize 35%, mirror and place in position.

Paste mesh, position on the left, duplicate, move the copy over to the right, erase the parts that overlap hiding the join behind the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste grass 1, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  Drag the copy of mesh above this grass layer. 

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

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

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

Paste candle, resize 30%, duplicate, resize the copy another 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste word art 4 on the top, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste bottle, resize 20%, drag below the word art, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste leaves 2, resize 40% and position on the left, duplicate, move the copy over to the right, duplicate again, mirror and flip this copy and position in the middle, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste berries, resize 30%, duplicate, mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.  Drag the centre leaves above the berry layers.

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

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste cloud, resize 73%and position below grass.  Duplicate, flip the copy, drag above the grass and place in position erasing the part that shows on the left of the tube.

Paste sparkles below the tube, resize 70% and place in position.
