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!

I used a gorgeous kit “Just Bee Cos” from
As usual, the kit is huge with 75 elements, 15 papers
and 9 frames plus sprays and word art!

I used mask 14 from

Font is 




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 11 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste spray 14, resize 85% and apply the mask.

Paste frame 4 and resize it 45%.

Paste your main tube and, resizing as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 75%.

Go back to the frame and select its interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and paste paper 6 into the selection.  Mirror the close up tube, paste it as a new layer, resize and position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect, change the blend mode on the tube to “Soft Light” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.  Again, I resized this tube 75%.

Paste spray 16 between the frame and the main tube, resize 80% and place in position.

Paste element 68, resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 75, resize 80%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

paste element 34, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 54, resize 95%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste spray 13, resize 55% and place in position.

Paste spray 15, resize 70% and place in position.

Paste element 3b, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 30%, drag below element 3b, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, drag up above element 3b, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 38, resize 22%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 39, resize 22%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste element 5, resize 40%, duplicate a few times, position around your tag and apply the drop shadow to each.

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