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

Font of choice.





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


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 850 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize 105%.

Paste element 140, resize 70%, place in position, erase the bottom part of the trunk and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 97, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2, resize 45% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 1, resize 50% and move into place.  Using your Freehand selection tool set to Point to Point with Feather 0, draw an oblong through the centre of the actual grey frame on the element, make a new layer below the element and fill the selection with black.  Open the tube, mirror it and paste as a new layer, resize it 80% and position in the frame, invert the selection, hit delete on the tube and deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and lower the opacity on the tube to around 80.

Undo the mirror on the tube, paste it again, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 46, resize 30%, position below the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 73, resize 33%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 132, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.


Paste element 116 resize 27%, duplicate and mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 115, resize 25%, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 31 on the top, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 40, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 62, resize 10%m, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 65, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 38, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 37, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 30%, duplicate, merge the copy down onto the original, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste element 95, resize 50%, mirror and place in position.
