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!

Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 700 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection, apply the Leather n Lace mask and resize it 90%.

Make another layer, paste paper 9 into the selection, deselect, apply Rachel’s mask and mirror it.

Paste element 37, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, position on the right hand side of your tag and apply the drop shadow,

Paste element 12, resize 50% and place in position.  Paste paper 3 below the element,  resize it 60% and place in position, select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and invert it, hit delete on the paper, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste element 45, resize 63%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 49, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the main tube, resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 75% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 50%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste the single Mr. Spindlebottom tube, resize it 75% and duplicate three times.  Mirror one copy, drag it down to just above the masks and place in position at the top.  Mirror a second copy, rotate it 10 degrees to the left, position him peeking out on the left above element 5.  Rotate one copy 20 degress to the right and position on the right behind the flower.  Flip the last copy, resize another 90% and position behind the gate.  Apply the drop shadow to each.

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