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 awesome layered tube “Fur Ball” from
the latest pack 64 by
Barbara Jensen.
You can purchase the tube at

I used the fabulous kit “Bling it on” from
Love the unusual New Year colour theme in this kit!
The kit is also available at

You will also need a mask, I used mask 84 from

Font of choice.



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, 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 5 and resize 55%, select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10 and make a new layer below it, paste the same paper into the selection and deselect.  Apply the shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

Paste element 13, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Paste the tube, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 15%, drag below the bow, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12 and bring to the top, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36, resize 20% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20, resize 40% and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 34, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3a, resize 25%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and resize it another 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers now and make any adjustments.  I made my mask a little larger.

Paste element 7 as a new layer, resize 70%, mirror and rotate 20 degrees to the left, position below the amber heart and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 60%, position just above the mask.

Paste element 6, resize 60% and position below just above the plant. 

Paste element 10, resize 20% and duplicate, position both below the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Add your copyright information and text.

Paste element 8 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

When you are done, export your tag on a transparent backround as a png.
