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 beautiful tube “Net Worth”

I used the kit “Recharge” from
The kit is also available at

You will need my mask

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 45, blur 10.


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, apply the mask and resize 95%.

Paste frame 2 and resize it 55%.  Paste the tube and resize her 70%.  Get the frame and the tube into position and apply the drop shadow to the tube.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 3 into it.  Open the close up tube, mirror it and paste as a new layer, position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste element 38, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 55%, drag below the frame/paper layers, duplicate, mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 3, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28 above the frame, resize 45% and duplicate, mirror one  copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 25, resize 35%, duplicate, resize the copy another 80% and drag it below the original, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 9, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 24, resize 20% and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 33, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 30% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 33%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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.
