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

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


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

Open and copy paper 5, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Open element 15, paste as a new layer and resize 70%.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below it.  Open and copy pp4, paste it into the selection and deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper. 

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 element 25 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, drag down below the tube and place in position.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate, rotate it 20 degrees to the right and place in position. Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open element 10 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 80%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate.  Place both elements into position and apply the drops shadow to each.

Open element 1 and paste as a new layer.   Flip, erase the bottom part of the pole, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open element 24 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35% and duplicate.  Place one element below the leaves on the right and bring the other to the top and position on the left.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open element 27 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 75%, rotate 70 degrees to the right, drag below element 24, place in position and apply the drop shadow changing the vertical and horizontal to 2 and blur to 5.

Open element 29 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change the settings back).

Open element 7, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open element 22 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60% and place in position.  We will come back to this.

Open element 30 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open element 26 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Now go back to element 22 and duplicate it, move the duplicate over to the right so a little of the ribbon shows, erase the parts that overlap hiding the join behind the hat and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open element 21 and paste as a new layer making sure it’s on the top.  Resize 35% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Open element 23 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%, drag down until it’s just above the mask and position top, right.  Duplicate, and move the duplicate over to the left.  Duplicate again, mirror and flip and move down to the bottom.

Open element 2 paste as a new layer and bring up to just below the tube.   Resize also 75% and place in position.

Open your text tool and find the font Impact, this is a Windows font so you should have it, set the size to 36 and the colour to the colour of the frame and type 2014.  Convert to a raster layer, place in position and change the blend mode to Hard Light.

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