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 fabulous kit from
that was inspired by the art of
although I used a different tube than the
one the kit was based on.
Both the kit and tube can be purchased at

I used two masks in my tag, photo mask 2 from the freebie “Burning Love” from
(you will find it under Freebies)
and mask 1 by
which you can get

Font of choice.




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


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 3 into the selection, apply Dee’s mask and resize 95%.

Make another layer, now paste paper 6 into the selection.  Paste the mask from Raspberry Road as a new layer and resize it 25%, you should still have a full selection so float and defloat the mask, invert the selection, activate paper 6 and hit delete, deselect and delete the original Raspberry Road mask.

Paste frame 1 and resize 75%, select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below it paste paper 3 into it, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

Paste element 5, resize 95% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube and, resizing as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 95%.

Paste element 17, resize 35%, drag below element 5, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 50% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1 and bring to the top, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 35%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 7, resize 45% and mirror, drag between the roses, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3 and drag to the top, resize 40% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments, then crop your tag if needed, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
