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!

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

Paste the mask and resize it 24%, select all, float and defloat it and make a new layer,  open paper 19, flip it then paste it into the selection and deselect, delete the original black mask layer and move the paper one up and to the left.

Paste the mask again, again resize 25%, select all, float and defloat as before, make a new layer and paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect, delete the original layer again and move the paper one down and a little to the right.

Paste element  79, resize 45% and move into place.  Click anywhere on your canvas outside of the element to make a selection, invert the selection and contract it by 10, make a new layer below the element and paste paper 11 into the selection.    Open the tube, mirror the full size one then paste on your canvas, resize 90% and change the blend mode to “Overlay”, position in the window, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge the tube down onto the paper and then merge the frame down onto the paper/tube.

Paste element  140, resize 35%, position below the merged layer and apply the drop shadow.
