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 75, blur 10.


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

Copy Papers (21), make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Duplicate the mask and merge the top copy down onto the original one.

Paste Element (41) as a new layer, resize 90%, move up a little and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (59) as a new layer, resize 45%, rotate 20 degrees to the left and place in position.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10 and make a new layer below it, copy Papers (4) and paste into the selection, deselect.  Will come back to this.

Paste Element (54) as a new layer, resize 60% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, drag down below 59 and the paper layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (5) as a new layer, resize 85%, mirror and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 65%.

Paste Element (66) as a new layer, resize 45% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (11) as a new layer, resize 45% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (9) as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (20) as a new layer, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (34) as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (54) again and bring to the top,  resize 60% and duplicate, place both layers in position, they will overlap but don’t worry about that now as we will be place other elements on the top. Apply the drop shadow to each layer.

Paste Element (5) again, resize 95% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (20) as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (50) as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (67) as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (27) as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (51) as a new layer, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (21) as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (28) as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (19) as a new layer, resize 40%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element (14) as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Elements (49) as a new layer, resize 75% and place in position, apply an inner bevel as in my screenshot below and apply the drop shadow.  



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

Go back to your tube and duplicate it, drag the duplicate below the frame, position in the frame to the right of the tube and change the blend mode to “Overlay”.   Repeat this with more duplicates of the tube, mirroring some and fill the frame.  If you have any parts that overlap, blend them out using your erasure with opacity set to 10.  When you are done, select the interior the frame and expand the selection as before then hit delete on each tube to remove the excess.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

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