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 used the art of Elias Chatzoudis.
You need a license to use Elias’ art,
they are available here.

I used an awesome kit called “Cherries Jubilee” by
Loved this kit, thank you Sarah!
You can get it here.

You will also need a mask, I used Weescotslass’ mask 220, here.

I used the font 5th Grader Bold, here.

For the polka dot effect on the font you will need
Dragonfly’s RetroDots plugin.
This is a free plugin which you can get here.



 
You will need to sharpen your elements after resizing or they will be a little blurry; check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.



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

Open sb_pmt_cherries_jubilee_pp2.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Open sb_pmt_cherries_jubilee_frame 2 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 75%.

Open the paper again and copy.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection, do not deselect.

Open your tube, mirror it and copy (use the close up if you have one) paste as a new layer on your canvas, resize as needed and position inside the frame.  Invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube.  Apply the drop shadow to both the frame and the tube and set the blend mode on the tube to “multiply”. 

Open sb_pmt_cherries_jubilee_splat 1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, drag down so its just above the mask layer and move over to the left, duplicate, flip the duplicate and move it over to the right.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open sb_pmt_cherries_jubilee_greenery 2 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 80%, place in position on the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open your main tube, paste as a new layer and bring to the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 
 
Open sb_pmt_cherries_jubilee_ribbon 4 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror and flip, resize 55%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_cherries_jubilee_flower 2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position behind the tube and apply the drop shadow

Open sb_pmt_cherries_jubilee_flower 1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_cherries_jubilee_lolli and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_cherries_jubilee_milkshake and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb|_pmt_cherries_jubilee_cupcake 3 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, when you are happy crop your tag and add your copyright information.

Open the 5thGrader font and type your name.  I used size 90 but sizes vary with different versions of Paintshop.  Apply Dragonfly’s RetroDots filter with my settings below (if you get a preview pane come up, just drag it out of the way).  Click on the blue box under “outside properties” and change the colour to #d23033.   




Apply an inner bevel with my settings below, then apply the drop shadow.





That’s it, we are done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, you can email me here if you have an questions.  As always, I would love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
