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 an awesome collection called “With Love”
The collection comprises a tube by Zindy and exclusive scrap kit by Jo.
You can get the collection here.
You will need a license to use Zindy’s art, you can get one from her site.
Thank you both!

You will also need a mask, I used gemsmask22, here.
(Its in set 1).

Font used is 1 Snappy DNA,
a free font, here.



 
Don’t forget to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating otherwise they will be blurry (adjust – sharpness – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 30).

Drop shadow used throughout is vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 5.


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

Open one of the papers and copy, I used CBJ_WLC_Paper15.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask. Resize 90%.

Open CBJ_WLC_StitchedHeart and paste as a new layer. Resize 80% and move up and to the left a little. Apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_WLC_StitchedHearts2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 80% and on the left a little lower that the first stitched heart. Apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_WLC_RibbonHeart and paste as a new layer. Rotate 15 degrees to the right, resize 80% and position on the right hand side of your tag.  Apply the drop shadow.

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

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

Opem CBJ_WLC_Vines and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open one of the tubes, I used the one without the hearts, paste as a new layer, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_WLC_HeartScatters and paste as a new layer. Drag down below the tube layer, resize 60% and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open CBJ_WLC_Rose3 and paste as a new layer. Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_WLC_Scatter, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 60% and place in position.

Open CBJ_WLC_Ribbon 2 and paste as a new layer. Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open CBJ_WLC_FlowerGems and paste as a new layer. Resize 65%, 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.
