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 kit “Secrets” from
Hania.
This kit includes the tube (with three options) and animation used
on the tag and can be purchased at

You will need mask frame (6) from
and my png mask

For the animation you will need
Animation Shop.

Font of choice.





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.

Paste my mask, resize 90%, select all, float and defloat, make a new layer and paste paper 7 into the selection, deselect, delete the original black mask layer, apply the shadow to the paper layer and move it over a little to the right.

Paste the mask frame, resize 80%, repeat as for the first mask but using paper 3.

Paste element 89, resize 40% and move into place.

Paste element 93, resize 45%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 94, resize 60%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 61, resize 50%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 95, resize 65% and mirror, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 13, reside 60%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 32, resize 65%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 34, resize 35%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 92, resize 25%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 45%, duplicate, merge the copy down onto the original, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 20% and mirror, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 79, resize 55%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 48, resize 50%. duplicate, position either side below element 79 and apply the shadow to each.

Paste element 28 on the top, resize 35%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 56, resize 25%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 62, resize 27%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 15%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 25%, position and apply the shadow.

Check your layers now and make any adjustments, I used my pick tool on the mask frame to drag it down slightly longer.  Add your copyright and text.



ANIMATION:

Starting at the top, close off all your layers down to and including the gravestone and merge visible, close off this merged layer, open the previously closed ones and again merge visible.

Open Simone’s animation in Animation Shop, you will see it has 14 frames. 

Copy your bottom merged layer and paste it in Animation Shop, duplicate it so it has 14 frames the same as the animation, copy all the animation frames and paste them on your merged layer, copy the top merged layer of your tag and again paste in Animation Shop, duplicate as before and paste on your animated tag.  Selection all the frames again, go to Animation – Frame Properties and change the display time to 20.

Run your tag through the Animation Wizard and save as a gif.
