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 purchased my license to use this tube from

You will also need a mask, I used mask 0120 from Simone at

Font of choice.



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

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer on your canvas and select all, copy paper 4 and paste it into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Paste element 49 as a new layer, resize 65% and position bottom left.  Duplicate, mirror and flip the duplicate and position it at the top.   Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Paste element 45 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 58 as a new layer, resize 60%, 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 70%.

Paste element 52 as a new layer, resize 65% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, drag between the flag and the rock carvings and position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left.  Apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 18 as a new layer, drag above the rock carvings, resize 65% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1 as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26 as a new layer, resize 45% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 34 as a new layer, resize 45% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 83 as a new layer on the top, resize 75% and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 40 as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 50 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 44 as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16 as a new layer, resize 65% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 33 as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32 as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 63 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste elements 67, 68 and 69 as new layers, resize two of the flowers 30% and one 35% then, using my tag for reference, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 29 as a new layer, resize 28%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 76 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments. I had to make my mask a tad bigger. 

Paste spray 5 as a new layer, resize 90% and position behind your tube.  When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
