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!

Please check out my “About my tutorials” page before starting the tutorial, thank you.

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


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

Open Paper6-GI_ThePunishment and copy.   Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 105%.

Open Moon-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 75%, move to the right and up a little. 

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

Open Cloud-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65% and place in position.

Open Frame3-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50% and rotate 90 degrees in either direction.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed and place both the tube and frame in position.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube.  I resized my tube 70%.

Go back to the frame, select the interior of each section with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10.  Now what you put in this selection depends on your tube, you can put one of the papers or you can fill with a colour.  I used the graphic that came with the tube, resized 85% and with a Gaussian blur of 2 (blur must be applied while the selection is still in place).

Paste your tube as a new layer again, resize and position inside the selection, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.  I resized the tube 75% this time.  Lower the opacity of the tube to around 60 and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open MoonChain-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer making sure it’s just above the frame.  Resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Bow1-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Grass1-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 75%, drag down so it’s just above the cloud, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Stone2-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Grass2-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, position to the left of the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open Bud-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position, erase the part of the stalk that shows below the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open Flower1_GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SecretsBox-GI_ThePunishment, paste as a new layer and drag up so it’s just below the main tube.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Flower2-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Ribbon3-GI_ThePunishent and paste as a new layer.   Flip, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Spider-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open SkullwSpiders-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.  Resize 22%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Skull-GI_ThePunishment,  paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Mirror, resize 18%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Candle1-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.  Resize 23% and duplicate, place both candles in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open WordArt1-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open LockwKey-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.  Resize 18%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Raven2-GI_ThePunishment and paste as a new layer.   Mirror, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, then crop your tag and add your copyright information and text.

Open Spider-GI_ThePunishment again and paste as a new layer.   Mirror, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

When you are done save your tag as a png.
