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 SkyScraps.
You need a license to use Sky’s art, available here.

The kit I used is called “Funky Teen Rebellion” by
I love the colours in this kit, thank you Vicki!
You can get the kit here.

You will also need a mask, I used HorsePlay’s Pasture mask 17, here.

Font is Ammonite, here.


 
Don’t forget to sharpen up those elements after resizing/rotating to take away the blurriness it causes; check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 80, blur 5.



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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used gemini_funkyteenrebellion_p5.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_frame5 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%.

Open gemini_funky_teenrebellion_p12 and copy.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection.  Deselect.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_splat and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, drag down below the frame and paper layer and position so it shows on the left hand side.  Duplicate this layer and position on the right hand side.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_cirlematte and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube and make your layer selections, copy, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize as needed (I resized 50%), place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube as a new layer again and resize a little larger than the main tube (I resized this one 70%).  Drag down so its between the frame and the paper layer and place in position on the right of the main tube.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left.  Again, select the interior of the frame and expand the selection by 10, invert the selection and delete the excess on these two tubes, set the blend mode on them to Soft Light and apply the drop shadow too the frame.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_frame4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, place in position on the first frame and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_speaker2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_guitar and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_flower4, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_button2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

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

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_tincan and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_flower2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_funkyshoes2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_lipstick and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_perfume and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_earphones and paste as a new layer.  Flip, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_funkyteenrebellion_dragonfly and patse as a new layer.  Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, when you are happy, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text, then export as jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here.  I would, as always, love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
