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 an awesome tube called “Yin” by
Zlata M.
This tube, which comes with different colour options, can be found at

I used a gorgeous Asian kit called “Red Lotus” by Angela at
Check out Angela’s blog to see where you can
 purchase her kits.

For the background, I used mask 480 by

Font of choice.



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 1 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  resize 80%.

Paste frame 4 as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29 as a new layer, resize 50% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 2 as a new layer, resize 35% and rotate 90 degrees in either direction, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9 as a new layer, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube as a new layer, place in position resizing as needed and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 53%.

Paste element 13 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24 as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 39 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments; I pulled my mask out a little wider using my Pick tool.

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