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 layered tube
“Satin Seduction” from pack 49 by
Barbara Jensen
but many of Barbara’s tubes will go
 beautifully with this tutorial.
Barbara’s tubes can be purchased at

The kit is a new one called “Think Pink” by
and can also be found at

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

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 55, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 8 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask, resize 95%.

Paste element 11 as a new layer and resize 60%.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, copy paper 1 and paste it as a new layer below the element, resize 50% and position nicely in the element, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

Paste you tube as a new layer and, resizing as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I did a little re-colouring on my tube, lowered the opacity of the pink skin to 60 and resized her 70%.

Paste element 25 as a new layer, resize 80% and mirror, drag below the merged layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14 as a new layer, resize 50% and duplicate.  Drag the copy above the tube and position on the left, drag the duplicate to below the tube, flip it and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 7 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position behind the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22 as a new layer on the top, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29 as a new layer, resize 65% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, resize 55% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8 as a new layer, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3 as a new layer, resize 35% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24 as a new layer, resize 30% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4 as a new layer, resize 22% and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 35% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your elements and make any necessary adjustments, then crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
