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 tube “Tee Tease”
from the latest pack 69 from
Barbara Jensen.
You can purchase the tube at

The kit is “Paint it Blue” from
This kit has some really nice elements and
is also available at

I used the mask 34 from

Font is



Apart from the butterflies, I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 2, opacity 75, blur 5.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 7 into the selection, deslect and apply the mask, duplicate and merge the top copy down onto the original.

Paste element 3 and resize 75%.

Paste the main tube and resize 65%.  Move the frame and tube into position and apply the drop shadow to the tube.

Select the interior of the right part of the frame with your magic wand and expand the section by 10, paste paper 10 as an new layer below the frame, resize it 80% and position it in the frame so some of the sparkly bits show, then invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.  Now paste the tube again, position in the frame and again hit delete, deselect and change the blend mode to “Soft Light”.   Repeat this with the left part of the frame and tube mirrored.   Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste element 13, resize 85%, drag down to just above the mask, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22 above the frame, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 9, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 50% and duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 6, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 80% and rotate 40 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, on the top, resize 70% and duplicate.  Position one copy on the right, mirror the other, drag it below paint brush and position on the left, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 10 make sure it’s on the top, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 55% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19, resize 40% and rotate 40 degrees to the left, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 10, opacity 65, blur 15.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments, then crop your tag if needed, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
