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!

Please check out my “About my tutorials” page before starting the tutorial, thank you.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.



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

Open pp1 and copy.   Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.

Open el2 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60%, move up and to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open el12 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60%, position in the top, left hand corner and apply the drop shadow.

Open el5 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70% and place in position.  Select the interior of the letter “O” and expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the element, open pp1 again and paste into the selection, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the element and merge it down onto the paper. 

Open el21 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, position so the end of the music is inside the letter “O” and apply the drop shadow.  It will look like it is sticking out a bit at the front but we will sort that out later.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  If you are using one of Barbara’s layered tubes, duplicate it and close the original, make your layer options and merge visible.   I resized my tube 70%.

Open el25 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 65%, drag down below the piano keys, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el24 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, flip, resize 70% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el6, paste as a new layer and drag up above the piano keys.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el3 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el23 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55% and duplicate.  Mirror the duplicate. drag it down and position above the globe.  Place the original in position over el3 and delete any that shows on the left of the tube on the piano keys.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers. 

Open el16 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el22 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el14 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el9 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el4, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el1 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el26 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el11 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  Erase any of the piano keys that show on the left of the guitar.

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.
