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 a soft drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 10, opacity 60, blur 15.


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

Copy Paper 01, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, duplicate and close off the top copy, deselect, apply mask 17 and resize 90%.  Open the closed copy and apply mask 15, resize 85%.

Paste Element 12 as a new layer, resize 60% and position in the top, left hand corner of the mask.

Paste Frame 01 as a new layer, resize 60% 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 10 as a new layer, resize 60% and rotate 35 degrees to the right, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 10 as a new layer, resize 70% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 8 as a new layer, resize 35% and duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste Element 03 as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 13 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 07 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 11 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 75% and rotate 70 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 01 as a new layer, mirror, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 04 as a new layer, resize 40% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste Element 6 as a new layer,  resize 30% and rotate 50 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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