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!

 Tips & Tricks page for info on how to get older 8bf plugins to work.

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 65, blur 10.



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

Paste the mask and resize 25%.  Select all, float and defloat the mask, make a new layer, paste paper 1 into the selection, deselect and delete the original black mask layer.

Paste frame 7 and resize 90%, select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 40, make a new layer below it and paste paper 2 into the selection, paste the tube, resize 80% and postion in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and lower the opacity on the tube to around 70.

Paste element 26, resize 70%, duplicate, mirror the copy, position below the frame layers and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19, resize 25%, duplicate twice, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6 and resize it 20%, apply the Copies plug in on the default settings apart from changing the number to around 100, erase all the stars that are outside of the mask, cut and paste a few more if you want, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 3 on the top and move into place.

Paste the tube again, resize 55%, cut off the bottom from just below her waist and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 2 and position a lot the bottom of the tube.

Paste element 24, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 43, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 44, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 66, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 65, resize 25% and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 53, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21, resize 50% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 25, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste element 7, resize 15% and duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 30%, position below the white lacy flower and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Crop your tag now and add your copyright information and text. I resized my tag 90% as it had got little large!!

Open the snow animation in Animation Shop, you may need to resize it depending on the size of your tag, I resized it 120% (Animation – resize animation).  Right click on your tag, copy merged and paste it in Animation Shop.  There are 10 frames in the snow animation so you need to duplicate your tag until you have 10 frames in that also.  Activate the snow, select all the frames and copy them  (Edit – Select all – Edit – Copy), activate the tag, again select all the frames, right click on the first one and “Paste into selected frame” and paste the snow on the tag.  Run your tag through the Optimization Wizard and save it as a gif.
