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

Paste element 58, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 121, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 56, resize 25% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 70, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 67, resize 65%, drag below the wall, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 112, resize 75%, place in position, erase that long bit that sticks up in the middle and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 97, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 88, resize 40% and position on the top, duplicate, mirror the copy and resize it another 80%, position just above the wall and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste the tube on the top, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 117, resize 10%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 118, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 84, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Paste element 30, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 97 again on the top, resize 15%, duplicate, mirror the copy, drag it below the wolf and position in front of the crown, place the original position above the wolf and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 40, resize 5%, position above the grass that is just below the wolf and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 41, resize 8%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10 on the top, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 11, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste the tube again just above the mask, resize it 60%, mirror, place in position and change the blend mode to “Hard Light”  and lower the opacity to around 65.  Select the mask, float and defloat it, invert the selection, hit delete on the tube and deselect.
