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 fabulous bonus tube “Fine Feathers” from
This tube comes totally free with a tube purchase of $10 or more from
before 4th September!

The kit is “Skeleton Dance” from
Love this fun Halloween kit which can also be purchased from

I used mask 2 of set 13 from

Font is 



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



Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 650 and fill with white.

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

Paste element 9, resize 70% and place in position.

Select the interior of the right hand part of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect.  Duplicate the inserted paper, mirror it and move over to the left part of the frame.  We will come back to this.

Paste element 17, drag below the frame and paper layers, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 26, resize 60% and place in position.

Paste element 31, resize 60% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13 on the top, resize 50% and rotate 40 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 20%, duplicate,  place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

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

Paste element 22, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste each of the skeletons, resize them 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 24, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 30%, position on the left of the tube, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 15, resize 60% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, drag below the top pumpkin, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 35 and make sure it is between the tube and the top pumpkin, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste the close up tube, between the frame and the two paper layers, position in the left part of the frame, select the interior of the frame and expand it as before, hit delete on the tube, deselect and change the blend mode to “Overlay”.  Repeat with the tube mirrored and positioned in the right hand part of the frame.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste element 11 above the frame, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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