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!

You will need my mask

I used the Windows font
Impact.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 95, blur 15.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 10 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. 

Paste the tube, resize her 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 45%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 65% and place in position.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand and expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below the element and paste paper 3 into the selection.  Paste the close up tube, position in the element, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light” and lower the opacity to around 75 and apply the drop shadow to the element.

Paste element 37, resize 45%, recolour purple, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 45, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 40, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 40% and rotate 90 degrees to the left, position on the right, duplicate, mirror and flip the copy, position it on the left and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 1, resize 25% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 35% and rotate 50 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 20% and rotate 80 degrees to the left, duplicate, mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 4, resize 20%, place in position (on the right) and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 4 again, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20 on the top, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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