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 Jessica Dougherty.
You need a license to use Jessica’s art,
available at CreativeDesign Outlet.

The kit I used was inspired by this tube (25-1) by
The kit is also available at Creative Design Outlet.

I used two masks, Insatiable Dreams mask 565 here
and Weescotslass’ mask 223, here.

Font of choice.




Remember to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating as otherwise they will look a little blurry; check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.



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

Open pp2 and copy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection and apply the Insatiable Dreams mask.  Resize 85.

Open pp5 and copy, make another layer on your canvas, the selection should still be there, paste the paper into it, deselect and apply Weescotslass’ mask.  Resize 95%.

Open fr1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60% and move up and to the right.  We will come back to this in bit.

Open el16 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 80%, move up and to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 90%.

When you have these three layers into position, go back to fr1, select the interior with your magic wand and expand the selection by 15.

Open pp5 again, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection.  Do not deselect.

Open your tube again, mirror it and paste as a new layer, position inside the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube.  I didn’t resize this tube.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and the tube and change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay”.

Open el2 and paste as new layer just below the main tube.  Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el11 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 85% and rotate 70 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el13 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el3 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place both elements into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open el10 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el15 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 110%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el7 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el12 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open wa, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el8 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place both elements into position and apply the drop shadow to each. 
Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are done, 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 any questions, please email me here.  As always, I would love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
