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!

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


Open a new canvas 750 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 10 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize the mask 75%, duplicate it and mirror the copy, position the original top left and the copy bottom right.

Paste frame 9 and resize 30%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 11 into the selection.   Paste the tube, resize it 90% and position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and the tube and change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay”.   Merge the frame down onto the tube and then again down onto the paper and move into position.

Paste element 105, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
