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 before you start if this is the first tutorial of mine you have followed, 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 and copy DD_Andalusian_Paper 10, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Open DD_Andalusian_Element 35, paste as a new layer and resize 65%.  Select the interior of the element with you magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below it. Copy DD_Andalusian_Paper 11 and paste it into the selection, deselect.   We will come back to this.

Open DD_Andalusian_Element 50 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, rotate 105 degrees to the right and move over to the right.  Select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection as before and make a new layer below it, copy Paper 10 again and paste it into the selection, deselect.  We will come back to this also.

Open your tube and paste it as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I used tube 1 resized 75%.

Open DD_Andalusian_Element 21 and paste as a new layer.  Drag below the tube, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open DD_Andalusian_Element 33 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, drag down to just above element 35 and position on the left, duplicate, rotate the duplicate 90 degrees to the right and position on the right.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open DD_Andalusian_Element 3 and paste as a new layer.   Drag above the last two elements, resize 55%, place in position, erase the part of the chain that shows and apply the drop shadow.

Open DD-Andalusian_Element 17 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55% and rotate 15 degrees to the right, position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left.  Erase the stalks that show at the bottom and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open DD_Andalusian_Element 4 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open DD_Andalusion _Element 38 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open DD_Andalusion_Element 34 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 75% and rotate 120 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open DD_Andalusion_Element 16 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open DD_Andalusion_Element 13 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open DD_Andalusion_Element 37 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Go back to element 35, select the interior and expand the selection as before.  Open your tube again, mirror it and paste it as a new layer just below the element, position nicely resizing if needed, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay”.  I used the tube in its original size.

Now go to element 50 and do the same but undo the mirror before copying the tube and set the blend mode to “Luminance (Legacy) and opacity around 50.  Again, I used the tube in its original size.

Open DD_Andalusian_Element 55 and paste as a new layer.   Drag up to just below the main tube, mirror, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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