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 lastest tube “Cowgirl 5” from
You can purchase the tube at

I used the matching kit “Yorkie Saloon” by
You will find the kit at

I used mask 3 from set 8 by

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow or vertical 0. Horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 7 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize 90%.

Paste element 47, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 131, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 134, resize 33%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 14, resize 33% and rotate 10 degrees to the right.   Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 15, make a new layer below it and paste paper 10 into the selection.    Paste the tube, resize 65% and position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.   Duplicate the paper layer, drag it above the tube and change the blend mode on it to “Screen”.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste the tube again, resize 30% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 130, resize 35% and mirror, drag below the main tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 65, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 112, resize 20% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 68, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 67, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 66 on the top, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 86, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Have a little shuffle around now with your elements and get them right so far.

Paste element 91 and resize 45%, drag right down to just above the mask and position on the right, duplicate and position the copy over to the left and down a bit. 

Paste element 89, resize 25% and duplicate, position one copy in front of the horse and one in from the crate of cabbages and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 7, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 17% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 12%, position below the tube and apply the drop shadow.

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