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 beautiful art of
You need a license to use Janice’ art, available at

I used a kit inspired by this tube (1-1) by Angela of
The kit can also be purchased at

You will also need a mask, I used mask 63 from Simone at

Font of choice.




Unless otherwise noted, I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 1 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. 

Paste frame 1 as a new layer and resize 45%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and paste paper 4 into the selection.  Paste your tube as a new layer and position in the frame resizing as needed, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and one to the frame but changing the horizontal to 0, repeat this drop shadow on the frame.  Close of your white background and mask layers, merge visible, open the closed layers and move the merged layer into position.  I resized my tube 60%.

Paste element 4 as a new layer, resize 85%, drag below the merged layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change the settings back).

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 35% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17 as a new layer, resize 60% and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, duplicate twice.  Mirror one copy, rotate it 10 degrees to the right and position it at the front.  Drag one copy below the candles and position so just a little shows to the right of them.  Drag the last copy below element 8 and position behind it.  Apply the drop shadow to all copies.

Paste element 9 as a new layer on the top, resize 15%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and resize it another 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste the wordart as a new layer, resize 55%, duplicate and merge the top copy down onto the original, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1 as a new layer, resize 35% and duplicate, mirror the duplicate and rotate it 50 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments, I made my mask a fraction smaller, when you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
