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 need to scroll down to see it, its numbered 1 - 91 when downloaded).

Font of choice.



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 60, blur 10.


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

Paste element 135, resize 80% and apply the shadow.

Paste the mask and resize 28%, select all, float and defloat, make a new layer, paste paper 39 into the selection, deselect, delete the original black mask layer and position the paper one on the bow.

Paste element 116, resize 25%, position and apply the shadow.

Paste element 70, resize 20%, position and apply the shadow.
