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 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 75, blur 10.


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

Open paper 1 and rotate it 90 degrees in either direction, make a new layer on your canvas, select all and paste the rotate paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. 

Paste element 40 as a new layer and position it on the right, duplicate, resize the duplicate 80%, move it up and to the left and then drag it below the original layer.  Apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste frame 1 as a new layer and resize 80%.  Select the interior of each section of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and fill each part with black, deselect.    We will come back to this.

Paste your tube as a new layer, place in position resizing as needed and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 70%.

Paste element 31 as a new layer, resize 65%, drag it between the two star layers, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32 as a new layer, drag above the star layers, resize 65% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36 as a new layer, resize 65% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 34 as a new layer and drag above the frame, resize 70% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9 as a new layer,  resize 45%, place in position to the right of the tube, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, drag down behind the original copy and position behind it.  Apply the drop shadow to both.

Paste element 25 as a new layer, resize 55% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7 as a new layer,  resize 65% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20 as a new layer, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5 as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers so far and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste your tube again, duplicate it and mirror one copy, select the interior of the outer two sections of the frame and expand it as before, position your tubes in the frames resizing as needed, invert the selection and hit delete on each, deselect.   Lower the opacity on the tubes to around 70 and apply the drop shadow to the frame.  I resized the tubes 70%, the same as before. 

Paste element 11 as a new layer on the top, mirror it and position it so the bottom loops of film are around the bottom of the tube then erase the reel and parts of the film so the loops are going around the tube and the length of film on the left is below the leaf and camera. 

Paste element 16 as a new layer on the top, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray as a new layer, resize 80%, place in position and erase the sparkles on the tube body.

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