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!

Please be sure to 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 9, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


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

Copy  Paper06, make a new layer on  your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.   Resize 85%.

Paste Frame01 as a new layer, resize 70% and move up and to the left.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10 and make a new layer below it, copy Paper03 and paste it into the selection, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.

Paste Frame 02 as a new layer, resize 70%, rotate 10 degrees to the right and place in position.  Select the interior the frame with you magic wand, expand the selection by 5 and make a new layer below it, copy paper 01 and paste it into the selection.   Paste your tube as a new layer and position in the frame resizing as needed, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and the frame and change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light”.  I used the half body tube mirrored and resized 70%. 

Paste Element 20 as a new layer, resize 75%, drag below both sets of frames layers, position on the right and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Wordart02 as a new layer, resize 50%, drag above the merged frame 1 layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 11 as a new layer, resize 50%,  place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube again and bring to the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  Again I used the half body tube this time resized 65%.

Paste Element 13 as a new layer, resize 40% and rotate 50 degrees to the right, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 25 as a new layer, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 31 as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 32 as a new layer, resize 40% and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste Element 30 as a new layer, resize 45% and duplicate, resize the duplicate 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste Element 29 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 14 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position erasing part of the chain and apply the drop shadow. 

Paste Element 23 as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I erased a bit to make it go between the candles. 

Paste Element 21 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 35 as a new layer, resize 30% and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, drag it below the book and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste Element 03 as a new layer, resize 40% and rotate 50 degrees to the right, position below the book and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Element 18 as a new layer on the top, resize 50% and duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

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