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!

Barbara Jensen.

You will also need a mask, I used mask 28 from

I used the font



Please be sure to 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 0, horizontal 5, opacity 95, blur 15.


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

Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, copy paper 7 and paste it into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Duplicate and merge the copy down onto the original.

Paste element 3 as a new layer, resize 60% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1 as a new layer, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2 as a new layer, resize 55% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 45% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  Select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10 and make a new layer below it, copy paper 10 and paste it into the selection.   Paste your tube as a new layer and position it in the frame resizing if needed, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and the tube.  I used the full size tube in its original size. 

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your main tube as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  Don’t try and line the tube up with the scroll at the moment as we will move that later. I resized my tube 70%.

Paste element 28 as a new layer, resize 40%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 24 as a new layer, resize 30%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 20 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22 as a new layer, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Duplicate element 6, drag the copy to just below the tube and close it off for the moment.  Go back to the original copy and erase any that shows to the left and below the tube.  Now open the copy and position it so the tube is inside the scroll erasing most of the scroll, just leaving the bottom part and the part to the left of the tube.  It doesn’t matter if this copy layer is not in line with the original one as it won’t show.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, resize 23% and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers again and when you are happy, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
