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 a tube called “Beautiful Dream” by

I used a really awesome kit “October – BCA” by
This is a really lovely kit with many more elements than

You will also need a mask, I used mask 10 by
Vix.

I used the font



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 55, blur 10.


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

Paste frame 8 as a new layer and resize 50%.   Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, paste paper 1 as a new layer below the frame, resize it 40%, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.  Paste spray 6 as a new layer making sure it’s on the top, resize 55% and merge down onto the frame/paper merged layer then move up and to the left.

Paste element 87 as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube as a new layer and, resizing as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I re-coloured my tube’s hair and necklace pink and resized her 35%.

Paste element 17 as a new layer, resize 45%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 88 as a new layer, resize 60% and position on the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and move over to the left.

Paste element 63 as a new layer and resize 50%.  Duplicate this element twice, position the original copy on the right at the bottom, mirror one copy and move it over to the left, flip the second copy and move it up a little keeping it to the right.  Apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 2 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 90 as a new layer, resize 80% and duplicate.  Close off the original,  rotate the copy 90 degrees to the left and duplicate it, mirror the duplicate and position these two copies on either side, open the original and position also on the right a little higher, erase any from each layer that shows below the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 16 as a new layer, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  Go back to the copy of 63 at is at the bottom on the right and drag it up above the heart.

Paste element 20 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 42 as a new layer, resize 35% and position on the right, duplicate, flip the duplicate and position on the left erasing the bit that sticks up at the top, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 21 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers so far and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste element 84 as a new layer making sure its on the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 81 as a new layer, resize 45%, position below the large pink flower that is behind the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 83 as a new layer, resize 50% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 51 as a new layer, resize 25%, tuck below the ribbon on the left and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 44 as a new layer on the top, resize 30%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Click on your white background layer, make a new layer, select all, paste paper 13 into the selection and apply the mask.  Mirror the mask and, if you need to, stretch it out to fit using your Pick tool.

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