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 Joel Adams.
You require a license to use Joel’s art,
I bought mine from CILM but they can now be
purchased from Creative Design Outlet.

I am using a beautiful new kit called “Summer Breeze” by
I just loved this colorful kit, thank you Schnegge!

You will also require a mask, I used Gem’s mask 21, here.



Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing and rotating, essential for a good looking tag (adjust – sharpness – unsharp mask – radius and clipping 5, strength 30).

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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used p09_SummerBreeze_Schnegge. Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de select and apply your mask.

Open frame02_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%. Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10. Open p16_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and copy. Back on your canvas, make a new layer below the frame layer, paste the paper into the selection and de-select. Go back to the frame layer and apply a drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 0, opacity 80, blur 5.

Open sun_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, drag down below the frame and paper layers and place in position using my tag for reference. Apply a drop shadow vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.

Open your tube, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize as required, place in position so she is coming out of the frame and apply the last drop shadow.

Open palm_SummerBreeze_Schnegge, paste as a new layer. Resize 65%, position on the right hand side of the frame and apply the last drop shadow.

Open starfish01_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 45%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open bottle_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 40%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open ribbon03_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Rotate 90 degrees to the right, resize 50%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.  

Open flower03_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

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

Open bubbles01_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 10%, place in position over the drink and apply the last drop shadow.

Open shell02_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 25%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open shell01_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and paste as a new layer.  Resize also by 25%, place in position and apply the last drop shadow.

Open butterfly02_SummerBreeze_Schnegge and paste as a new layer. Resize 20% and duplicate. Mirror the duplicate and resize another 90%. Place the butterflies in position on the left had side of the frame and apply the last drop shadow to each one.

Crop your tag and resize if required. Add your copyright information and text and export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
