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 a fabulous scrap kit 
called "Abracadabra" by
You can get the kit here.
The kit includes the gorgeous cat!
Thank you Sarah!
This kit doesn’t need a tube with that lovely cat!

You will also require a mask, I used
Monti’s circle mask, here.

Font used is Endless Voyage by Jellyka.
This is a free font and you can get it 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 50).

Drop shadow used through is vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.


Open a new transparent canvas 600 x 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used sb_pmt_abracadabra_pp2. Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection and apply your mask. Resize 90%.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_fence 2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%, move slightly up and over to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_clock and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, move over slightly to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_magic 1 and paste as a new layer. Resize 60%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate. Position both layers towards the bottom of your tag.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_book and paste as a new layer. Resize 45%, rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_flower 2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 60%, rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_flower 4 and paste as a new layer. Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_flower 3 and paste as a new layer. Resize also 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_magic 2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 80% and place in position.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_couldron and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_bottle 2 and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_lamp and paste as a new layer. Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_mask and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_cat and paste as a new layer. Resize 110%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_abracadabra_dragonfly and paste as a new layer. Resize 15%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate. Place both dragonflies into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

 Crop your tag and resize if required, add your text, add your copyright information if you have used a tube, if you have not used a tube, you should credit the designer.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here. Don’t forget, I would love to see your results and add them to my tag gallery.
