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!

I have left this tutorial on for reference  but it appears unfortunately that Lina's kits  are no longer available.


In this tutorial I have used the art of Lady Mishka.
You need a license to use Lady Mishka’s art,
I purchased mine from PSP Tubes Emporium but
they are now available here.

I am using an awesome free to use kit called
“Kiss me, I’m Irish” by
Lina’s Designs.
You can get the kit here.
Thank you Lina, this is a really lovely kit!

You will also need a mask, I used Insatiable Dreams mask 565, here.

Font used is Ale and Wenches,
a free font here.


 
I always remind you lol but remember to sharpen your elements after rotating or resizing as otherwise they will be a little blurry (adjust – sharpness – 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 650 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Make a new layer on your canvas and flood fill with the colour #6cba3b. Apply the mask and resize 85%.

Open LD_Kiss_Me_I’M_Irish_paper(5) and copy.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection and de-select.  Apply the mask again, resize 75% and merge down onto the first mask layer.

Open LD_Kiss_Me_I’M_Irish_Frame(2) and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%.

Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame layer and flood fill with a dark green, I used #148414. Do not de-select.

Open your tube or the close up if you have one, mirror, copy and paste as a new layer on your canvas. Drag down below the frame layer, resize if needed and place in position in the frame. Invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube.  Apply the drop shadow to both the tube and the frame layers.

Open LD_Kiss_Me_I’m_Irish_Bow and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, position on the top, right hand corner of the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open LD_Kiss_Me_I’m_Irish_Button(2) and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25%, drag down below the bow layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube again, undo the mirror, copy and paste again as a new layer, bring to the top, resize if needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open LD_Kiss_me_I’m_Irish_Pot_Of_Gold(2) and paste as a new layer.   Resize 65%, drag down below the tube layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open LD_Kiss_me_I’m_Irish_Rainbow and paste as a new layer.  Rotate 20 degrees to the left and resize 75%, drag down below the pot and place in position.

Open LD_Kiss_me_I’m_Irish_Four_Leaf_Clover and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

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

Open LD_Kiss_me_I’m_Irish_Beer(3) and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

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

Open LD_Kiss_me_I’m_Irish_Dice, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 25% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, 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 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 the gallery!
