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 2 from

Font is



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


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 800 and fill with white.

Open the mask and mirror it.  Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 3 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask with the “Invert mask data” box checked.

Paste element 37, resize 38% and move into position.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 15, make a new layer below it and paste paper 6 into the select and apply the drop shadow to the element.

Paste element 1, resize 70% and move into position.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 15, make a new layer below it and paste paper 6 into the selection,  deselect.  We will come back to this.

Paste element 2, resize 60%, drag below the frame and paper layers, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 41 on the top, resize 66% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the main tube, resize 27%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 30%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 90%, drag down to just above the mask and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the right, duplicate this copy again and move to the top, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 22, resize 25%, position on the right, duplicate, drag the duplicate up and position on the watch, duplicate again, mirror this copy and position on element 2, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 25, resize 25%, position on the right, duplicate, flip this copy and position in the middle, duplicate this copy again, mirror it, drag down to just above the leaves and position on the left, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 24, resize 70 and mirror, duplicate, merge the copy down onto the original, drag down below the watch, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, drag above the watch, resize 50% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 44, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 49, resize 40% and rotate 40 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36 on the top, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments. 

Paste element 16, resize 80%, drag down to just above the mask and position at the top, duplicate, move the duplicate down to show at the bottom and apply the drop shadow to each.

Go back to element 1, select the interior of the frame and expand the selection as you did before, position the mirrored tube  below it resized 60%, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and the frame, change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light” and lower the opacity to around 80.

Paste element 33, resize 23% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 32, resize 23%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 40%, place in position, apply the drop shadow and erase a piece so its hooked around the watch ring.

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