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 85, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 800 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 31 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask, resize it 110% and move up and to the left a little.

Paste element 23, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 66, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 111, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 113, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 77, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 53, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 83, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 63, resize 20% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 135, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 134, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 62, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 39, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 85, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 14, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 62 again, resize 40% and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 107, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 84, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Apply your text and apply an inner bevel as my screenshot, apply the drop shadow twice and then drag below element 84.
