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 tube “Eranae” by Akkassaa.
You need a license to use this tube, available at

The kit I used was custom made for the tube and is
also called “Eranae” by Gemini Creationz,
also available at Scraps and the City.

You will also need a mask, I used Horseplay’s Pasture mask 11, here.

Font is All Hooked Up, here.




Remember to sharpen up those elements after resizing/rotating as otherwise 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 80, blur 5.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used gemini_eranae_p3.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Open gemini_eranae_e4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%  and move a little to the left.  Duplicate, flip the duplicate and move up a little and to the right.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open gemini_eranae_e1 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, drag down so its below the first two flowers, position towards the top, left hand side and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_eranae_e8 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75% and rotate 100 degrees to the left.  Drag down below all the flowers and position so some of the leaves show on the left hand side.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate and move over so some show on the right.   Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open gemini_eranae_e7, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 75%, move over a little to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_eranae_e31 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_eranae_e43 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open the tube and paste as a new layer,  resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

 Open gemini_eranae_e44 and paste as a new layer.  Drag down below the tube, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open gemini_eranae_e15 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_eranae_e38 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_eranae_e19 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_eranae_e34 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_eranae_e35 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_eranae_e46 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Celinart_EmoBear, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Mirror, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Open gemini_eranae_e54 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, drag right down until is just above the mask layer and place in position so some of the beads show on the left hand side.  Duplicate, mirror and flip the duplicate and position on the right.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers. 

Crop your tag and add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
