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 am using the art of  Myka Jelina.
You require a license to use Myka’s art,
you can get one here.

I am using Grunge& Glitter’s part of the fabulous collab
“Digital Chaos”
This is an awesome collab with fourteen kits by fourteen designers,
you can get it here.
Thank you Brandi!

You will also need 
Italian Editors Effect “Mosaico”, here.
If you have Filters Unlimited you will need to import the
filter into that. 

I used two masks, Monti’s circle mask, here
and Mellisaz Creationz mask 5, here.

Font used is Zooey, here



As always, don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing (adjust – sharpen – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 50).

Drop shadow used - vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.


Open a new transparent canvas 600 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open frame1 and paste as a new layer. Resize 65%.

Open your tube, paste as a new layer and drag down below the frame layer. Resize as required, I also mirrored mine, apply the drop shadow and position in the frame.  Go back to the frame layer and select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10 and invert, go back to your tube and hit delete. Lower the opacity to around 70. Do not de-select.

Open paper 8 and copy. Make a new layer below the tube layer, invert the selection and paste the paper into the selection. Go back to your frame layer and apply the drop shadow.

Close off the background and frame layers and merge visible.

Duplicate the merged layer and apply Italian Editors Effect Mosaico to the duplicate with the default settings.  Lower the opacity to around 35. Merge visible. You can now re-open the closed layers.

Open gear1 and paste as a new layer. Resize 45%, place in position on the right hand side of the frame as my tag and apply the drop shadow.

Open gear2 and paste as new layer. Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open cross and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open flair1 and paste as a new layer. Resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open flair2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 15% also and duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each layer.

Open candelabra and paste as a new layer. Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube again and paste as a new layer. Resize as required, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Click on your bottom white background layer, make a new layer and select all. Open paper8, copy and paste into the selection. De-select and apply Monti’s circle mask. Resize 85%.

Make a new layer and select all. Open paper4, copy and paste into the selection. De-select and apply Melissaz Creationz mask 5. Resize 85%.

Crop your tag, resize if required and apply your copyright information and text.

When I did the name I used an outline of 1, selected the interior colour with my magic wand and applied a soft bevel with the settings below, removed the selection and then applied the drop shadow.
