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 awesome art of
You need a license to use Enamorte’s art, available at

The kit was inspired by the art of Rene Kunert
and is by Angela at
The kit is also available at

I used mask 1 from
which you can get

I also used one of the masks in the freebie “Burning Love” from
(you will find it under Freebies).

Font of choice.



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10 and I re-coloured some of the elements in the kit to better match my tube.

This a large tag, its mainly large because of the mask but the mask needs to be big to give the effect, I resized mine when I had finished so it fitted my blog but I would not have resized it otherwise.

Open a new transparent canvas 800 by 800 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 3 into the selection, deselect, apply Dee’s mask and resize 95%. Put this canvas aside for the moment.

Open another canvas 800 by 800 pixels and select all, paste paper 4 into the selection and close this layer off.  Paste the Burning Love mask from Raspberry Road as a new layer and position so the main part is central.  You should still have the canvas selected, float and defloat this mask (Selections – float, Selections – defloat), invert the selection, open the paper layer, click on it to activate it and hit delete, deselect.  Copy this layer and paste it on your main canvas.  You can now delete this second canvas.

Paste element 6, resize 70% and place in position.

Paste frame 1, resize 50% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I used the half body layer resized 80%.

Paste element 13, drag below the tube and place in position.

Paste element 11, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 17, resize 70% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, duplicate and close off the duplicate for now, mirror the original, resize it 50%, position to the right of the tube and apply the drop shadow.  Open the original, drag it above the tube, resize it 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, drag below the top rose, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 40% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the wordart, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 50% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, duplicate, arrange both copies along the bottom erasing any feathers in the wrong place and apply the drop shadow.

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