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!

I used the font



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

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 65, blur 10.


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

Open pp5 and copy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.

Open el4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, rotate 10 degrees to the left and place in position.  Select the interior of the heart with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below it.  Open and copy pp2 and paste it into the selection, deselect. 

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

Open el12 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 80% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el17 and paste as a new layer.  Resized 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el27 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 70% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow,

Open el10 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65% and place in position (no shadow).

Open el26 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el11 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el23, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Mirror, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el15 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el8 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el28 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%,  rotate 100 degrees to the right and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el20 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el30 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50% and rotate 15 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open your tube again or the close up if you have one, paste as a new layer below the heart and place in position resizing if needed.  Select the interior of the heart and expand the selection as before, invert it, activate the tube and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and the frame and change the blend mode on the tube to “Luminance (Legacy)”.  I used the close up resized 70%.

Check your layers again and when you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export as a png on a transparent background.
