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!

You will also need a mask, I used mask 18 by

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 horiozontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


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

Copy Paper 05, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.   Duplicate and merge the top copy down onto the original copy.

Paste Element 15 as new layer, resize 65% and position top, right, duplicate and position the duplicate bottom, left.

Paste Element 05 as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element04 as a new layer, resize 65%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Frame 01 as a new layer, resize 65% and place in position.   Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below the frame, copy Paper 06 and paste it into the selection, deselect.

Open your tube, paste as a new layer and position in the frame resizing as needed.  I resized my tube 75%.

Paste Element 13 as a new layer, resize 60%, drag below the tube, position on the right and duplicate, position the duplicate on the left erasing any that overlap and apply the drop shadow to each layer.

Paste Element 03 as a new layer, resize 60%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 10 as a new layer, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 14 as a new layer and drag above the frame, resize 60%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and drag above the tube.  Position the butterflies so they look as if they are coming out of the frame with the tube, you can erase some and cut and paste some to get them how you want, then apply the drop shadow to each layer.

Paste Element 06 as a new layer on the top, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 11 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 01 as a new layer, resize 25%, drag below the bow, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 02 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 09 as new layer, resize 30%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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