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!

For this tutorial you will need a close up and body tube.

I am using a fabulous kit called “Eternal Love” by
You can get the kit here.
Thank you Cora!

Mask used is 163 by weescotslass, here.

You will also need MuRa’s Filter Meister, copies.

Script font of choice.




Remember to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating to take away the blurriness (adjust – sharpen – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 30).



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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used pd12-pp-02.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask. Resize 90%.

Open pd12-flower-03 and paste as a new layer, do not move from the centre of your canvas. Apply MuRa’s Filter Meister, copies on the settings in my screenshot below. Resize 80% and apply a drop shadow, vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.



Open pd12-print-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, drag down below the flower layer and place in position.

Open pd12-feather-02, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 70% and rotate 15 degrees to the right. Move over a bit to the left and apply the last drop shadow.

Open pd12-frame-02 and paste as a new layer. Resize 60%.

Open pd12-00-09 and copy. Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame layer and paste the paper into the selection. Do not de-select.

Open your close up tube, mirror and paste as a new layer. Resize as required and position nicely in the frame. Invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube. Apply the drop shadow to the tube and set the blend mode to “overlay”. Go back to the frame layer and apply the same drop shadow.

Open pd12-ribbon-02 and paste as a new layer. Resize 30%, place in position on the frame and apply the last drop shadow.

Open your main tube and paste as a new layer, resize as required and apply the last drop shadow.

Open pd12-print-02 and paste as a new layer. Resize 80%, place in position along the bottom of the frame/main tube and apply a drop shadow changing the horizontal and vertical to 1 and the blur to 3.

Open pd12-glass-02 and paste as a new layer. Resize 45% and duplicate. Resize the duplicate 95% and drag it down below the first copy. Place both glasses in position and apply the original drop shadow to each.

Open pd12-flower-06 and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 45%, position between the two glasses and apply the last drop shadow.

Open pd12-flower-02, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-flower-04 and paste as a new layer. Rotate 90 degrees to the right, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-flower-03 and paste as a new layer. Resize 40%, drag down below flower04 layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-note-01, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open pd12-button-01 and paste as a new layer. Resize 75%, drag down below the tube layer and tuck the button in behind her on the right hand side.

Open pd12-hearts-01, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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.
