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!

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 10 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask, resize it 85% and move it over to the left,

Paste spray 2, resize 90% and move into place.

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

Paste frame 3 and resize 33%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame, paste paper 6 into the selection and deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and position behind the tube.

Paste element 28, resize 35%, position behind the merged frame and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 64, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check  your layers now and make any adjustments.

Paste element 36, resize 50% and mirror, apply the drop shadow, position above the ribbon erasing the part that goes across the tube.
