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!

In this tutorial I used the gorgeous tube
“Cute Photographer 3”
From

I used the matching kit
“Captured Moments”
From

elements and papers and can be purchased from

I used mask 2 from set 2 from

Font of choice.



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 55, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 800 pixels and fill white white.

Paste the mask and resize it 45%.  Select all, float and defloat the mask, make a new layer and paste paper 14 into the selection, deselect and delete the original black mask layer.

Paste frame 8 (its very large, you will only see the corners), resize 30% and rotate 10 degrees to the left.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below the frame and fill the selection with black.  Paste the close up tube, resize it 55%, position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Lower the opacity of the tube to around 70 and apply the drop shadow to the frame.  Merge the frame down onto the tube, merge down again onto the black layer and move into position.

Paste frame 8 again, this time resize it 27% and rotate 20 degrees to the right then repeat the above with the tube mirrored and resized 45%.

Paste element 102, resize 65%, drag below the two merged layers, place in position, erase the trunk that shows at the bottom and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 79, resize 25%, flip and position on the left, mirror the copy and position it on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste the main tube, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 85, resize 60% and mirror, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Pate element 88, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 89, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 105 and resize 60%.  Make a new layer below the element and fill it with white,  go back to the element, select all, float and defloat it, expand the selection by 2 and invert it, hit delete on the white layer and deselect.   Merge the original black layer down onto the white layer, apply the drop shadow and move into positon.

Paste element 38, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 40, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
