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 Anna Marine.
You require a license to use Anna’s art.
I purchased mine from CILM but they are now
available at CreativeTube Outlet.

I am using a beautiful autumn kit called “Leaves will Fall” by
The kit is exclusive to Dreamscape Imaging.

You will require a mask,
I used Gems’ mask 22 which is in Set 1, here.

Font used is Leaf 1 which is a free font, here.



Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating to take away the blurriness (effects – sharpen – unsharp mask – radius and clipping 5, strength 30).


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

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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used CBJ_LeavesWillFall_Paper7. Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask. Resize 85%.

Open CBJ_LeavesWillFall_LeafSpil2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 55% and rotate 90 degrees to the right. Apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_LeavesWillFall_FrameWrp2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 65% and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_LeavesWillFall_HangerBranch and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 28%, place in position on the left hand side of the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_LeavesWillFall_ClpFlow2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 20%, rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position on the hanger branch and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open CBJ_LeavesWillFall_Brys2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 30%, rotate 80 degrees to the left and place in the position on the bottom, left hand side of the frame. Duplicate this layer and mirror. Apply the drop shadow to each layer.

Open CBJ_LeavesWillFall_ColourdFlows and paste as a new layer. Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_LeavesWillFall_LeafString2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 38%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open CBJ_LeavesWillFall_Flower1 and paste as a new layer. Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Check the positioning of all your elements, crop your tag and resize if required. Add your copyright information and text and export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions please email me here. I would of course love to see your result and feature it in my gallery.
