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 a beautiful tube from
You can now purchase this tube at

I used a stunningly beautiful kit called “Kisses to Heaven” from
The kit can be purchased at

I used mask 0216 from
and mask 50 from

Font of choice.



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 40, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 75 by 700 and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection and apply Millie’s mask.

Make another layer and paste the paper into the selection again, deselect and apply Trese’s mask, resize the mask 75% and then use your pick tool to pull it down slightly longer.

Paste element 66, move into position, apply the drop shadow and change the blend mode to “Overlay”.

Paste element 23b and resize 65%.  Paste element 23a and resize 49%, position this element exactly on top of 23b then drag it below it,  apply the drop shadow to it then merge the top copy down onto the one with the shadow and move into position.  I did it this way because I did not want the shadow on the clouds.

Paste element 56, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.   Set your eraser to size 50 and opacity 30 and dab it around the wrists to blend the element in.  Paste element 90, resize 50%, mirror and position over the bottom of the hands.

Paste the tube , resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I recoloured my tube in accordance with the terms of use of the company I purchased it from, if you purchased from a different store you will need to check their terms.

Paste spray 4, resize 40%, drag below the tube and place in position, duplicate and merge the top copy down onto the original

Paste element 73, resize 50% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and then drag down below the spray.

Paste element 22, below the tube, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7b, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 71b, resize 50%. Place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 55, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 69b, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 81, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 70b, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 80a, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste word art 1e, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste elemet 41, resize 30%, duplicate twice and mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 72 on the top, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 76, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 62, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 7, resize 70%, mirror and position below the tube.

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