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 my mask

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

Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 800 pixels and fill with white.

 Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize 90%.

Paste Moon, resize 65% and move into place.

Paste Cloud, resize 60% position across the moon.

Paste Bush, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Grasses Brushed resize 40% and mirror, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Violin, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste Grasses, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Smudge, resize 60% and position along the bottom of Grasses.  Duplicate, bring the copy to the top, mirror it, resize it another 90% and position along the bottom of the tube.

Paste Sunflowers 1, resize 40%, position below the top copy of Smudge and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Leaves, resize 30% and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste Candles, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Brooch w Pent, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Spider Web, resize 30% (you will hardly see it), duplicate it, merge the copy down onto the original, duplicate again and again merge down, place in position, erase the long bits that stick out too much and apply the drop shadow.

Pate Berries 2, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Ground Leaves, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers now and make any adjustments.
