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!

You will need mask mask 4hwol.fecnikek (3)
and my mask

Font of choice.





I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 8 into the selection, apply my mask,  resize 90% and lower the opacity to around 65.

Paste Fecnikek’s mask and resize it 20%.  You should still have a full selection on your canvas so float and defloat the mask, make a new layer and paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect and delete the original black  mask layer.

Paste frame 1c, resize 65% and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 6, resize 60%, drag below the frame and position on the left edge of it, apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 25 on the top, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  There was a bit of a blank space so I copied one of the bats and filled the gap in!
