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!

The kit is “Afternoon Wine” from

You will need mask 2 from set 78 from

Font is 




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


Open the mask and mirror it.  Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 700 pixels and fill with white.  Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 8 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste frame 10 and resize it 37%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 5, paste paper 11 below the frame and resize it 40%, position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

Paste element 99, resize 35%, drag below he merged layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 100, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 86 on the top, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 92, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 52, resize 27%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 42, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 97, resize 60% and drag below the tube, duplicate twice and close the top one off. Mirror one of the open copies, place both copies in position either side of the tube erasing the parts that overlap  and hiding the join behind the tube.  Open the closed copy and position so the purple flowers show on the barrel, drag below the other two copies and erase the parts that show either side then apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 85, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 40, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 68, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 89, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 22% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 49, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 73, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 95, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 96, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28 again, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1 on the top, resize 8%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.  I enlarged the mask slightly, just 5% bigger.
