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!

Paste element 45, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  1, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize 50%, position below the rocks and apply the drop  shadow.

Paste element  7, resize 40%, duplicate, mirror the original copy and position on the left below the tube, position the top copy on the right and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element  12, resize 85%, position between the two copies of element 7 and apply the drop shadow.
