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 art of Eugene Rzhevskii.
This tube was a gift by Eugene to his license holders to celebrate his birthday.

Thank you Eugene!

You will also need a mask, I used Gem’s mask 12, here.

Don’t forget to sharpen up those elements after resizing or they will be a little blurry. Check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.


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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_pp9.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. 

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_frame3 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%.

Open another of the papers and copy, this time I used sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_pp11.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection, de-select.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper layer.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_confetti and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%, drag down below the merged layer and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_banner, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_balloon2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_balloon4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_sprinkles and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35% and duplicate, place both copies in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_drink and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_present1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_button2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_drink2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_ribbon5 and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_present2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_happy-bday-to-me_candy1 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and when you are happy, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text.
