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 mask hw17 from

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0,  horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.



Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 700 and fill with white.

Paste the mask and resize it 25%.  Select all, float and defloat the mask, make a new layer, make a new layer, paste paper 23 into the selection, deselect and delete the original black mask layer.

Paste element  103, resize 50%, duplicate, close of one copy, place the other in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  74, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  69, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open the closed copy of the tree, mirror it, position so a little shows to the right of element 69 and erase the rest of it then apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  21,  resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  6, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  frame 10 and resize 20%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, paste paper 16 below the frame and resize 40%,  mirror the tube then paste it on your canvas, resize 80%,  change the blend mode to “Difference” and position the paper and tube in the frame, then invert he selection and hit delete on both.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge the tube down onto the paper then merge the frame down onto that merged layer and move into place.

Paste element  98, resize 25%, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each. 

Paste element  100,  resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  55,  resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow,

Paste elements 17 and 18, resize each 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
