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!

Paste spray 17, resize 80%, mirror and flip and position towards the top.

Paste spray 2, resize 110% and move down on the canvas.

Paste element 101b, resize 55%, duplicate, mirror the copy and resize it another 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 106c, resize 35%, drag below the palm trees, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 55e on the top, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 123, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 65a above the boat, resize 40% and mirror, duplicate, merge the copy down onto the original and then duplicate again,  position along the boat erasing any that shows below the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 103b, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 100, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 110, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste wordart 7, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Copy the main tube and paste as a new image, mirror and crop from the top of her head to just above her shorts, apply the 20.20 mask and then paste on your canvas between the two palm trees, resize 50% and move into place.

When you are all done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
