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!

I used mask 8 from the soft mask set from

Font of choice.


I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blue 10.


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

Paste frame 1, resize 30%, duplicate and close off the copy.  Select the interior of the duplicate with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and fill the selection with paper 10, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.  Open the original copy of the frame, rotate it 10 degrees to the right and then repeat the above using paper 2.  Move both hearts into position.

Paste the tube making sure it’s on the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 8, resize 80%, rotate 10 degrees to the left and place in position.

Paste spray 6, resize 60%, rotate 20 degrees to the right and place in position.

Paste spray 11, resize 80% and place in position.

Paste element 5, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 45% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 45% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 1, resize 55% and place in position.

Paste element 72b, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 25% and rotate 70 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 65, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21 on the top, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 41, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12b, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 56, resize 30%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 39, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, drag below element 56, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 37, resize 25% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 43, resize 25% and flip, position above element 56 and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Make a new layer just above the white background, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection and apply the mask.  Move the mask up and to the right a little then duplicate it and move the duplicate down so a little shows at the bottom. 

Resize your canvas to 750 pixels  length with the tag centred.

Paste spray 12 as a new layer, resize 90% and adjust the position.

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