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 Eugene Rzhevskii.
You require a license to use Eugene’s art,
you can get one here.

I am using an awesome kit called “Pink Poison” by
You can get the kit here.
Thank you Schnegge, I loved working with this kit!

You will also require a mask,
I used Wee Scot’s Lass Mask 318, here.

I used the font Campanile
which is a free font, here.



Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating to take away the blurriness (effects – sharpen – unsharp mask – radius and clipping 5, strength 30).



Open a new transparent canvas 600 x 550 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers, duplicate and close the original, I used p16_PinkPoison_Schnegge. Apply the mask to the paper, copy and paste as a new layer on your canvas, resize 90% and apply a drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 80, blur 3.

Open frame11_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Apply a drop shadow vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.

Open frame01_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%.

Open p19_PinkPoison_Schnegge and copy. Select the interior of frame01 with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame layer and paste the paper into the selection, do not de-select.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as required and position it inside the frame, invert the selection and delete the excess. Lower the opacity of this layer to around 45%.  Go back to the frame layer and apply the same drop shadow as you did for the first frame.

Open moon_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, drag down below the frame layers, place in position and apply the drop shadow changing the opacity to 50.

Open leaf02_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 70% and rotate 20 degrees to the right. Place in position and apply the drop shadow changing the opacity back to 80.

Open bow02_PinkPoison_Schnegge, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 70%, place in position on the top right hand corner of the top frame and apply the last drop shadow.

Open corset02_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open flower03_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 50%, place in position on the bottom, left hand corner of the top frame and apply the last drop shadow.

Open candle01_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open frog_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 30%, place in position on the top corner of the frame and apply the last drop shadow.

Open hat_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow changing the blur to 3.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer. Resize as required, place in position and apply the drop shadow changing the blur back to 5.

Open a couple of the flowers, resize and position behind your tube. I used flower02_PinkPoison_Schnegge, mirrored and resized 80% and flower04_PinkPoison_Schnegge resized 50%. Apply the last drop shadow to each of your flower layers.

Open BlackWidow_PinkPoison_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow with the blur set to 3.

Crop your tag and resize if required then add your copyright information and text. I made a pattern from the corset for the background on my text. 

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here.
