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 a really pretty freebie mini kit “Sweet as Honey” by

You will also need a mask, I used mask 141 by

Font of choice.



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 75, blur 10.


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

Copy RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini_Paper (4), make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.  I toned the colour of the paper down a little to better suit the tube.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (5) as a new layer, resize 25% and move down.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (26) as a new layer (it’s very large, you wont see it) and resize 17%. With your freehand selection tool on point to point, draw a selection around the frame as my screenshot below.  Copy RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini_Paper (1), make a new layer the frame and paste the paper into the selection, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.




Paste your tube as new layer resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 90%.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (16) as a new layer, resize 15% and rotate 140 degrees to the left, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (18) as a new layer, resize 20% and rotate 20 degrees to the left place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (10) as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 22% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (27) as a new layer, resize 20% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (23) as a new layer.  Resize 15%, drag down below the last two elements and place in position, erase the branch and the string and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (19) as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (6) as a new layer, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (8) as a new layer, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (13) as a new layer, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (12) as a new layer, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
