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 tube “Windblown”

I just love this kit! It can also be found at
Barbara’s storewww.barbarajensentubes.com.

You will also need a mask, I used mask 141 by

I used the font



Please check out my “About my tutorials” page if this is the first time you have followed one of my tutorials, thank you.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 80, blur 10.


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

Open pp6 and copy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 110%.

Open el6 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, rotate 90 degrees to the right and position top, right.  Duplicate,  mirror the duplicate and position on the left.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open el12 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position on the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open el16 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70% and duplicate twice, position one flower on either side and one at the top and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open your 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 tubes, duplicate it and close the original, pick your layers and copy merged.  I resized my tube 70%.

Open el11 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 67%, drag below the tube and place in position.  Select the interior with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, open and copy pp8, make a new layer below the element and paste the paper into the selection.   Open your tube again or the close up if you have one, paste it as a new layer and resizing as needed, position inside the element then invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Luminance Legacy” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.  I used the close up tube mirrored and resized 70%.

Open el5 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55% and position so the grapes show on the right of the tube.  Duplicate, drag the duplicate down below the flowers and position on the right, duplicate again, mirror and position on the left.  Apply the drop shadow to all copies.

Open el15 and paste as a new layer.   Drag up above the frame, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el10 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el14 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el3 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el7 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el8, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Flip, resize 55% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open el19 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, drag down below the frame/tube/paper layers and place in position.  I then cut and paste a piece of this so some showed between the roses.

Open el27 and paste as a new layer.   Drag up to just below the tube, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el13 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, drag down to just above the mask, duplicate three times and place in position around the tag mirroring and flipping the duplicates.  Apply the drop shadow to each layer.

When you are 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.
