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 if this is the first tutorial of mine you have followed, thank you.

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


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 675 pixels and fill with white.

Open and copy Paper5-GI_BlackRose, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 85%.

Open Moon-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.   Resize 65% and place in position.  Apply the drop shadow with the box “Shadow on a New Layer” checked  and then apply a Gaussian blur with radius set to 20 to the shadow.  Click on the moon element to activate it and apply the drop shadow again.

Open Frame5-GI_BlackRose, paste as a new layer and resize 48%.  Select the interior of each part of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 5 and make a new layer below it.  Open and copy Paper7-GI_BlackRose and paste it into the selection, deselect.  We will come back to this.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, place roughly in position resizing as needed and apply the drop shadow.  I used tube 2 resized 75%.

Open WA2-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Grass-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45% and position just to the right of the tube, duplicate and move the duplicate to the left of her, apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open Cluster-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.   Resize also 45%, position on the right of the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Open Pebbles-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70% and position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

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

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

Open Bottle-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.   Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Berries2_GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70% and rotate 90 degrees to the right.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place both elements into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open Rose2-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.   Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  This goes directly behind the tube.

Open Ribbon1-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open FabricRose-GI_BlackRose, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 15%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

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

Duplicate your tube twice, close one copy off and mirror the open copy, drag it down below the frame and position inside the right hand part,  select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand it as before and hit delete on the tube to remove the excess, deselect.  Open the closed copy and repeat positioning the tube in the left hand part of the frame.  Change the blend mode on the tubes to “Overlay” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open Dragonfly-GI_BlackRose, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Moss-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60% and rotate 90 degrees to the Right.  Drag right down so it’s just above the mask and position on the left along the bottom edge of the tag.  Duplicate and mirror the duplicate.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open Cloud-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and position just above the two pebble layers. 

Open Sparkles-GI_BlackRose and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40% and place in position.

Check your layers again and double check on a black background. You may need to erase some of the white cloud that shows at the bottom of your tag.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
