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 “Trapeze” from
You need a license to use this tube, available at

I used a new kit called “Carousel” from
This is a really awesome kit, I have so loved working with it,
you can purchase it at

You will also need a mask, I used mask 92 from

I used the font



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 95, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 650 and fill with white.

Paste Board Frame, resize 50%, move over to the right a little and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Tent, resize 50%, drag below the frame and position inside on the left, erase the part showing outside of the frame.

Paste Heart 1 making sure its on the top, resize 35% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, drag below frame 2, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Paste Frame 2, resize 45% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Bow 2, resize 25% and rotate 70 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Doodle, resize 55% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Feather, resize 45% and mirror, drag below the tube and place in position.

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

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

Paste Embl2, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Torn Paper, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Fabric Rose, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste WA4, resize 50%, drag below the rose,  place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Leaves, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste Dice and bring to the top, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Top Hat, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Lolli, resize 25% and roate 60 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Dart, resize 15% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments, I resized my mask 105% at this point as it had got a little lost.

Paste Lights as a new layer just below the tube, resize 65% and place in position (check the position on a black background layer also).

Click on the white background layer to activate it, make a new layer, select all, paste paper 5 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. Move it up and to the left, duplicate and move the duplicate across so just a little shows on the right then erase the part that overlaps with the original copy.

Paste Mask Drop, resize 55% and move up and to the right.  I re-coloured this yellow to better match the tube.  Now go back to Tent element and change the blend mode on it to “Overlay”.

Paste Mask, resize 45% and place in position.  Click on the original copy of thebackground mask to activate it, go to Select all – Selections Float – Selections Defloat then invert the selection, click on the mask element and hit delete twice, deselect.  Now change the blend mode on the mask element to “Overlay”.

Paste Bling as a new layer just above the Board Frame, resize 80% and place in position.

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