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 Zlata_M.
You need a license to use Zlata’s art,
you can get one here.

I am using a fabulous new kit by Sky Scraps called
“Citylicious”.
This is a great kit and will go with so many tubes!
Thank you Marie.
You can get the kit here.

You will also need a mask, I used Weescotslass’ mask 214, here.

Font of choice.



Remember that after resizing/rotating your elements will become a little blurry so you need to sharpen them up again (adjust – sharpen – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 30).

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


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used SkyScraps-Cytilicious-pp4. Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask. Resize 90%.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e60 and paste as a new layer. Resize 55%, select the interior of both parts of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10.

Open another of the papers and copy, this time I used SkyScraps-Cytilicious-pp1. Make a new layer below the frame layer and paste the paper into the selection, de-select. Apply the drop shadow to the frame layer and merge the frame layer down onto the paper layer.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e28 and paste as a new layer. Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. You can adjust the positioning of your elements later.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e17 and paste as a new layer. Resize 50% and rotate 15 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e26 and paste as a new layer. Resize 45% and rotate 15 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e1 and paste as a new layer. Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e10 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e4 and paste as a new layer. Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e14 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e29 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e12 and paste as a new layer. Resize 30% and rotate 15 degrees to the right, 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 SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e62 and paste as a new layer. Resize 70%, drag down below the tube layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-Cytilicious-e84 and paste as a new layer. Resize 80% and place in position behind the tube.

Check the positioning of all your elements and make any adjustments. When you are happy, 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. As always, I would love to see your result and feature it in my gallery!
