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!

Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask, resize it 95% and duplicate, move one copy up and to the right a little and the other down and to the left, you can adjust them later.

Paste element 62, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 48, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 1, resize 80%, rotate 90 degrees to the right and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 2 into the selection.  Paste the Girl only tube, position in the frame, invert the selection, hit delete on the tube, deselect, change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

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

Paste element 9, flip, drag below the main tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36, resize 60% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 72, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 73 on  the top, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
