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!

Paste element 89, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 94, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize 35% and mirror, paste the tube again and resize this copy 32%, place both tubes into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste frame 11, resize 35%, drag below both tubes and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and fill with black.  Paste the tube again, resize 75% and position in the frame, invert the selection, hit delete and deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and lower the opacity on the tube to around 55.

Paste element 110, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow then erase it back claw to make the bird look perched on the chaise longue.
