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 art of
Amy Matthews.
You need to license to use Amy’s art,
available at

The kit, inspired by Amy’s January bonus tub,
is by Angela at

I used two masks, mask 0443 from
and mask 1 by
Dees’Sign Depot,

I used the font



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.

Make a new layer, fill with the colour #9f1d0c and apply Dee’s mask, resize 95%.

Make another layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection, deslect and apply Trese’s mask making sure the box “Invert mask data” is checked,  then rotate the mask 10 degrees to the right. 

Paste frame 1 and resize 60%.

Paste your tube, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 85%.

Paste element 14, resize 30%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 1, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments, I made my mask a tiny bit smaller.

Paste element 18 just below the frame, resize 75%, place in position, erase any that shows outside of the frame other than the dart and apply the drop shadow.  Duplicate the frame, drag the duplicate below element 18 and erase part of the top copy so the end of the dart is above the frame, then apply the drop shadow to the bottom frame layer. 

When you  are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
