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 55,  blur 10.



Paste spray 1.   Paste spray 3 and resize 70%. Move the two sprays into place.

Paste element 40, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 46, resize 85% and mirror, position on the top on the left, duplicate, resize the copy another 85%, mirror it and position on the right below the birdcage, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste frame 7 on the top and resize 35%.  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 5 into the selection.  Paste the tube, resize 60% and position in the frame, invert the selection, hit delete on the tube and deselect.  Duplicate the tube, change the blend mode on the bottom copy to “Luminance Legacy”, change the blend mode on the top copy to “Overlay” and lower the opacity to around 60, apply the drop shadow to the frame, close off all your layers apart from the frame, tubes and paper and merge visible, open the closed layers and move the merged one into place.

Paste the main tube, resize 27%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.   I recoloured her hair.

Paste spray 6, resize 80%, rotate 90 degrees to the left, drag right down to just above the two sprays and position on the left of the tube, duplicate, mirror the copy and move over to the right of her, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 70 just below the tube, resize 20% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
