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 Eugene Rzhevskii.
You need a license to use Eugene’s art, available here.
This tube was a gift from Eugene but if you don’t have it
he has other beautiful tubes which will go just as well with this kit.

The kit I used is called “Pure Romance” and is by
This is a really lovely kit, you can get it here.

You will also need a mask, I used Vix Big Mask 1, here.

Font is Fiolex Girls, here.





Your elements will need to be sharpened after resizing/rotating as it makes them a little blurry;  check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

Unless otherwise stated, I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 75, blur 5.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 500 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open sb_pmt_pure-romance_pp6 and copy.   Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. 

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, move over to the right a little and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_pure-romance_frame 2 and paste as a new layer.  Drag down below the tube, mirror and resize 85%.

Open sb_pmt_pure-romance_pp1 and copy.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and paste the paper into the selection.  Do not deselect. 

Open your tube again and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, position in the frame on the left, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Soft Light” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open sb_pmt_pure-romance_word art and paste as a new layer.  Drag down so its just above the mask, resize 80% and rotate 15 degrees to the left, apply the drop shadow changing the vertical and horizontal to 1 and blur to 3.

Open sb_pmt_pure-romance_champagne and paste as a new layer.  Drag up so its just below the main tube, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change it back to the original settings).

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

Open sb_pmt_pure-romance_lock and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_pure-romance_letter and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_pure-romance_music note and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open sb_pmt_pure-romance_flower 4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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, you can email me here.  Don’t forget, I would love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
