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 layered tube “In Fine Feather”
from the fabulous new pack 55 from
Barbara Jensen.
You can purchase the tube from

The kit is called “Un-teal We Meet Again” by
This is an awesome kit with so many lovely elements
I just didn’t know which to use!
The kit is also available at

You will also need a mask, I used mask 151 by

Font of choice.




Please be sure to check out “About my tutorials” page before starting if this is the first of my tutorial you have followed, thank you.

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



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

Copy pp8, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection and apply the mask, resize 95%.

Paste element 22 as a new layer, resize 65% and move a little up and to the right.  Select the interior of the element with you magic wand and expand the selection by 30, make a new layer below it and fill with colour #3d3d3d, deselect.  We will come back to this.

Paste element 12 as a new layer, resize 55% and rotate 110 degrees to the right, drag below the frame and black layer and duplicate, place both layers in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste your tube as a new layer and bring to the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 70%.

Paste element 3 as a new layer, resize 35%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13 as a new layer, resize 55%, place in position on the left and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19 as a new layer, mirror, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow,

Paste element 9 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26 as a new layer, resize 90% and rotate 80 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24 as a new layer, resize 35% and rotate 20 degrees the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21 as a new layer, resize 70% and position on the left, duplicate and move the duplicate over to the right, erase the parts that overlap hiding the join behind the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 18 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11 as a new layer, resize 27% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Activate tube again, make sure you are working on a duplicate copy and not the original.  Pick any layers you want, it doesnt matter about colours but dont use the Nails Lips black layer.  bring the Nails Lips black layer to the top, close it off and merge visible. Make the merged layer active and go to Adjust – Hue and Saturation – Colorize, set both values to 0 and apply.  Open Nails Lips Black layer, take a sample red from the lips on your main tube and re-colour the lips red.  Merge the red lips down and paste the tube on you canvas, drag it between the frame and the black layer and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame and expand the selection as before, then hit delete to remove the excess, do not deselect.  Open pp8 again, duplicate it and close the original,  re-colour the duplicate  with the same values as before and change the blend mode on it to “Overlay” (it won’t look any different until you paste it on your canvas), paste it as a new layer above the tube, resize 40% and position it so the dots show nicely around the edge of the tube.  You should still have the selection there,  hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.

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