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 am using the art of Jenga.
You require a license to use Jenga’s art,
you can get one here.

The scrap kit I used is Creationz by Jo’s awesome new kit
(the kit is presently on sale with a 40% discount!)
This is a fabulous kit just bursting with goodies!
I loved it, thank you Jo!

You will also need a mask.
I used Insatiable Dreams mask 598, here.

I used the font Pharmacy, which is a free font, here.



Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing and rotating, essential for a good looking tag (adjust – sharpness – unsharp mask – radius and clipping 5, strength 30).


I used a drop shadow vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5 on all my elements.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 550 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open CBJ_Dark vs Light BlkGlitter and paste as a new layer. Resize 65%, move over a bit to the right hand side of your canvas and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Dark vs Light WhtGlitter and paste as a new layer. Resize this also 65%, move over to the left hand side and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Dark vs Light Fr2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 80% and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Dark vs Light Clock and paste as  new layer. Resize 40%, place in position on the right hand side and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Dark vs Light PinKey and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, place in position on the clock, erase part of the pin so it looks like it has pierced the clock and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Dark vs Light Floral and paste as a new layer. I wanted to keep my elements mono colored so I re-colored it. Resize this 80%, move it over to the left and apply the drop shadow. You may need to erase some of the stalk when you have your other elements and tubes in place.

Open CBJ_Dark vs Light Flowers and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 65%, place in position a bit to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Dark vs Light Ivy Frame and paste as a new layer. Resize 50%, rotate 90 degrees to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Dark vs Light ButFly2 and paste as a new layer, again I re-coloured this element. Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer. Resize as required, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Dark vs Light DoodleEdge2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Dark vs LightIvy and paste as a new layer. Rotate 110 degrees to the left, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_Dark vs LightFlowerChm and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open one of the papers, I used CBJ_Dark vs LightPaper15 and copy. Activate your bottom white background layer, make a new layer, select all and paste the paper into the selection, apply the mask.

Apply your copyright information and text. Crop your tag and resize if required. Export as a jpeg or as a png on a transparent background.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here.
