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 a tube called “Ginger Zero Gravity” from
Barbara Jensen’s layered pack 36.
You can purchase the tube at Barbara’s store.

I used a kit called “Dangerous B” by
You can get this awesome kit from

You will also need a mask, I used
Gems’ mask 187.

Font of choice.



Before starting the tutorial, please check out my “About my tutorials” page, thank you.

Unless otherwise stated, I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.



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

Open SS-pp5 and copy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. 

Open SS-E53 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 80%, move over to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open SS-E52 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SS-E24 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70% and place in position.  It already has a drop shadow and no need for another.

Open SS_E13 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SS-E70 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, move up slightly and apply the drop shadow.

Open SS-E51 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65%,  rotate 100 degrees to the left and place in position.  We will come back to this later.

Open your main tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.   If you are using one of Barbara’s layered tubes, open it and close the original, make your layer options and copy merged.  I resized my tube 70%.

Open SS-E33 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, drag down below the white frame and position so it shows a little at the top, apply the drop shadow. 

Open SS-E62 and paste as a new layer.  Drag up so it’s just below the tube, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el10 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SS-E59 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SS-E60 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%,  place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SS-E66 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I re-coloured this element all black.

Open SS-E61 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SS-E54, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I re-coloured it black.

Open SS-E76 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SS-E56 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 27%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SS-E27 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow but changing the vertical and horizontal to 2 and blur to 5.

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

Open SS-E15 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60%, drag down so its just above E51, that's the white frame, duplicate and place in position as in my tag. 

Open SS-pp5 again and copy.  Activate E51, that’s the white frame, select the interior of it with your magic wand and expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below it and paste the paper into the selection.  Do not deselect.

Open your tube again or the close up if you have one and paste as a new layer, resize as needed and position inside the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.  I used the close up resized 70%.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Luminance (Legacy)” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open SS-E45 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60% and place in position.  Erase any that shows at the bottom of the car.

Open SS-E26 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

When you are all done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
