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!

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

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal -5, opacity 75, blur 5.


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

Open the paper ditz_spbgb and go to Effects – Image Effects – Seamless Tiling.  Make sure it’s on the default setting and then check the “Vertical” box under Direction, click ok.  Now click on the Foregrounds box in your material palette and open the patterns, look for the paper and open it, set the angle to 180 and the scale to 15 then make a new layer on your canvas, fill it with the pattern and apply the mask to it.  Resize 90%.

Paste ditz_sp17ib as a new layer and resize 45%.  This element already has a shadow so no need to add one.

Paste ditz_spe4 as a new layer, resize 37%, move up and to the left a little and apply a the drop shadow.

Paste ditz_spe1a as a new layer, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste ditz_spe5 as a new layer, resize 30%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste ditz_spec2b as a new layer, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste ditz_spec2 as a new layer,  resize 18%, 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 80%.

Paste ditz_spea4 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste ditz_spfc1 as a new layer, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste ditz_spfc2 as a new layer, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste ditz_spe3 as a new layer, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open ditz_spea3 and paste as a new layer, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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