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 amazing art of
You need a license to use Enys’ art, available at

I used a fabulous freebie sampler kit called “Be Mine or Die” from
(use the search box in the top, left hand corner).

I used mask Mask 1 from
Dees’Sign Depot.
You can get it




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection and apply the mask.

Paste the grid and resize 65%; we will come back to this later.

Paste frame 4, resize 60% and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 7, make a new layer below it  and paste paper 4 into it, deselect.  We will come back to this frame also.

Paste your tube and, resizing as needed, position in the frame and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 75%.

Paste the charm, resize 30%, place in position on the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Paste attachment, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste ribbonwflower, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste voodoodoll making sure it’s on the top, resize 30% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the glittertrail, resize 60% and place in position.

Paste wordart42, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the mushrooms, resize 25% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste ribbon1, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the brad, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste the pin, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers now and make any adjustments that are needed.

Go back to the grid and duplicate it, place the original at the top and the duplicate so just a little shows at the bottom and then erase the rest of this copy.

Paste stitches,  resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste bloodsplatter, resize 50% and position in the top, right hand corner, duplicate and move this copy over to the right, duplicate the original again, mirror and flip it and position lower down on the left.  Apply the drop shadow to each copy.

Pate your tube again and resize it as before, drag it below the main tube and change the blend mode to “Overlay”.  Duplicate this tube a couple of times and position them in the gaps in the frame around the main tube erasing any parts that overlap.  Select the interior of the frame and expand it as before, invert the selection and hit delete on all these copies of the tube to remove the parts outside the frame, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

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