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!

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


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

Open Fairy Dusty (35) and copy.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 85%.

Open Fairy Dust (36) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 90%, mirror and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (34) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 42% and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (80) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 80%, drag down below 34, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (66) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube, paste as a new layer and bring to the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 80%.

Open Fairy Dust (49) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 80%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (3) and paste as a new layer.   Mirror, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (106) and paste as a new layer.   Mirror, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (72) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (18), paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (67) and paste as a new layer.   Mirror, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (33) and paste as a new layer.    Resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (115) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Fairy Dust (44) and paste as a new layer.   Mirror, resize 80% and position along the bottom of your tag.

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

Open Fairy Dust (34) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 18%, drag down below the tube and position so it looks like she is holding it, apply the drop shadow and erase the part that shows below her hand.  If you are using a different tube you can position on the ground in front of the tube.

Open Fairy Dust (37) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60%, drag down below 34 and place in position.

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