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!

In this tutorial I used the tube 104-1 from
Anna Liwanag.
You can purchase the tube at

The kit is “Thinking of You” from
A really beautiful kit that you can purchase at

You will need png mask 332 from

Font of choice.



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 55 blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Paste the mask, select all, float and defloat, make a new layer, paste paper 13 into the selection, deselect and delete the original black mask layer.   Duplicate this layer and merge the copy down onto the original.

Paste spray 11, resize 50% and move into place.

Paste spray 8, resize 50%, duplicate, merge the copy down onto the original and move into place.

Paste element 17, resize 50%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste spray 23, resize 60%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 110, resize 45%.  Click anywhere on your canvas outside of the element with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, paste paper 14 below the element and resize it 35%, position inside the element and  hit delete, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the element, merge it down onto the paper and move into place   You can of course use element 11b here but you will not have the shadow around the panes.

Paste frame 8 from papers 1b, resize 30% and move into place.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and paste paper 13 into the selection, mirror the tube then paste on your canvas, resize 50% and position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and change the mode on the tube to “Overlay”.

Paste the tube again, resize 27%, position and apply the shadow.
