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!

In this tutorial I used the layered tube “Inkling” by
Barbara Jensen.
This gorgeous tube is the current bonus tube
free with a tube purchase of $10 from
before 11th November.

The kit is “La Vie en Rose” by
This beautiful kit comes in a lovely soft colour scheme
and is also available at

You will also need a mask, used mask 63 by Simone at

I used the font



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 60, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste element 2 as a new layer, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28 as a new layer, resize 70% and place in position dragging one copy below the clock.

Pate element 6 as a new layer making sure its on the top, resize 55% and place in position.  Select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 5, make a new layer below it and paste paper 3 into the selection,  deselect.  We will come back to this.

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

Paste element 9 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 8 as a new layer, resize 50%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24 as a new layer, resize 55% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4a as a new layer, resize 30% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22 as a new layer, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30 as a new layer, resize 33%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and drag it below the original copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layer positions and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste element 15a as a new layer, resize 50% and rotate 50 degrees to the right, position on the right above the pink rose, duplicate and move the duplicate over the left, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste the close up as a new layer, resize it 80% and mirror it, drag it between the frame and paper layers, change the blend mode to overlay and position it in the frame.  Again select the interior of the frame, expand the selection as before, invert it and hit delete on the tube to remove the excess, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

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