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 Zlata_M.
You need a license to use this tube, available at

I used an awesome kit made especially for the tube
called "Yolanthe" by
The kit is also available at Scraps and the City.

You will also need a mask, I used HorsePlay's Pasture mask 10, here.

Font is Parisian, here.



Don't forget to sharpen up those elements after resizing as otherwise 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, opacty 80, blur 5.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 550 pixels and flood fill with white. 

Open one of the papers and copy, I used SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-PP3.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E61 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55% and move up just a little.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTE-PP4 and copy.  Select the interior of each part of E61 with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the element and paste the paper into the selection, deselect.  We will return to this when we have more of our elements in position.

Open the tube, select girl1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize her 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E87 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, drag down until its just above the mask, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E48 and paste as a new layer.  Resize also 45% and position towards the bottom on the left.  Duplicate and move the duplicate over to the right.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E29 and paste as a new layer. Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E40 and paste as a new layer.  Drag up so its just below the tube, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E20 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E69 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E15 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E16 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E13 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E82 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANTHE-E21 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Open the tube again and select close up 3.  Paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%. Drag down so its just below the frame layer and position in the right hand part of the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.

Open the tube again and this time select close up 2.  Do the same with this close up as you did with the last one but this time positioning it in the left hand part of the frame.  Apply the drop shadow to both close ups and to the frame.

Open SkyScraps-YOLANDE-E80 and paste as a new layer.  Make sure its above the frame, resize 80% and change the blend mode to "Soft Light".

Once again, check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are happy, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text, then 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 questions, please email me here.  As always, I would love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
