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 awesome new layered tube “Wild Child”
From the latest pack 82 from
You can purchase the tube at

I used the kit “Cutting Edge” from
The kit can also be purchased at

I used mask 4 from set 119 by
and my mask 0005

Font is




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.



Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 800 and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 2 into the selection and apply Rachel’s mask.

Make another layer, paste paper 1 into the selection, deselect and apply my mask.

Paste element 30, resize 70% and rotate 60 degrees to the right, position towards the left at the top of your tag, duplicate, mirror the copy and move it down and to the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste frame 5, resize 40%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and place both frames in position.   Select the interior of the top frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame, paste paper 2 into the selection and deselect.  Now repeat the above with the bottom frame and the paper mirrored.  We will come back to these frames.

Pate your main tube, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26, resize 60%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 30% and duplicate, drag the copy down and position on the left below the frame and paper layers, flip the original and position behind the tube, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 17, resize 30%, duplicate and mirror the copy.  Position the copy on the right below the tube and the original above the tube, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 4, resize 35%, drag below the top copy of element 17, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 45, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 43, resize 25%, position below the ribbon on the left, duplicate, drag the duplicate down below to just above the silver ball and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 29 on the top, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, on the top, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 30%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Go back to the two frame layers and arrange them so the two frames are at the top of the group and then the two papers below them.   Select the interiors of each of them making sure your magic wand is set to Add (shift) mode and expand the selection by 10, paste the close up tube below the two frames, resize it 90%, place in position, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and the frame and change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay”.

Paste element 2 below the main tube and resize 80%.

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