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!

If this is the first tutorial of mine you have followed, please check out my “About my tutorials” page before you start, thank you.

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10 unless otherwise noted.


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 600 pixels and fill with white.

Copy Paper_3, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 85%.

Paste Element_2 as a new layer, resize 90%, mirror, move up and to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_1b as a new layer, resize 65%, move up and to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_30 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_32 as a new layer, resize 55% and position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left, apply the drop shadow to each layer.

Paste Element_7 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube as a new layer, resize as needed, drag down to just above the path and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 55%.

Paste Element 48 as a new layer, resize 70%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_21 as a new layer, resize 65%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_3 as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow,

Paste Element_44 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste elment_34 as a new layer, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

My tube’s head is cut off at the top, I hid this by adding element 37, flipped, mirrored and resized 25% positioned just above the tube but you may not need this depending on your tube.

Paste Element_31 as a new layer and drag up to just below the fence, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_33 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element_26 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position on the left, duplicate, drag the duplicate above the fence and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste Spray_4 as a new layer, resize 65%, drag below the fence and place in position.

Paste Element_11b as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 50% and apply a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 0, opacity 76 and blur 15, repeat the drop shadow.

Paste Element_29 as a new layer, resize 25% and duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each (remember to change the settings back).

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

Paste Spray_2 as a new layer, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, when you are done crop your tag and add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
