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 two masks, mask 1 from
and mask 4 from

I used the Wndows font
Century Gothic.



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


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 600 and fill with white.

Copy paper 3, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection and deselect.  Duplicate the paper and close the copy off, apply Melissaz’ mask to the original, resize it 90% and mirror it. Open the copy and apply Witchys Heart’s mask, resize 95%.

Paste element 1 as a new layer and resize 60%.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and paste paper 4 into the selection.  Do not deselect.

Paste element 28 as a new layer, resize 55% and position in the frame (don’t worry that there will be a gap at the bottom), invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.  

Paste element 31 as a new layer, resize 55%, drag below the steps and place in position, again hit delete to remove the excess, deslect.

Paste element 4 as a new layer, resize 45%, drag below the tree and place in position.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, steps and tree, close off your white background layer and both masks and merge visible, reopen the closed layers.

Paste element 2 as a new layer, resize 55%, mirror and rotate 60 degrees to the left, drag below the merged layer, place in position, apply the drop shadow and then repeat it.

Paste the tube as a new layer on the top, resize 60% place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Paste element 27 as a new layer, drag below the tube, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19a as a new layer, resize 30%, position behind the tube, duplicate, resize the duplicate another 80% and position on the cauldron, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 35 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19 as a new layer, resize 23%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17 as a new layer, resize 45%, drag down to just above the cauldron and position on the left, duplicate, flip the duplicate and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each. 

Paste element 6 as a new layer on the top, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5 as a new layer, resize 27%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 25 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32 as a new layer, resize 35%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11 as a new layer, resize 15% and duplicate it, mirror one copy and flip the other, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 34 as a new layer, resize 25%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 30 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste element 23 as a new layer, resize 60%, drag below the tube and place in position.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
