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 from
Eclipsy.
You need a license to use this tube, available at

I used the full kit “Horror Whorez” and the
matching freebie sampler from
You can get the sampler from
Jessica’s blog
and the full size kit from

I used two marks, mask 68 from
and mask 3 from set 8 by

Font is



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

Most elements and all papers used are from the main kit so please assume I am using the main kit unless stated that it’s the sampler.


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 700 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection and deselect.  Duplicate the paper, close off the copy and apply Moonbeams & Spiderwebs mask to the orignal.  Open the copy and apply Rachel’s mask.

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

Paste the fence, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the window, resize 60% and place in position.  We will come back to this.

Paste the main tube, resize 65% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste stalks, resize 45%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste word art 2, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

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

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

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

Paste the eye on the top, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste the heart, resize 25%, drag below the bloodink, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers now and make any adjustments.

Paste the pool of blood from the sampler, resize 25%, drag below the word art and position on the left of the tube, duplicate, flip the duplicate, place in position below her and apply the drop shadow to each.  When you have them in position, erase a bit of the bottom of the eyeball so it looks like it’s in the blood and do the same around the base of the glass.

Paste vials on the top, resize 25%, place in position, apply the drop shadow and erase some off the bottom like before.

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

Paste pills, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Click on the window to activate it and then click anywhere on your canvas anywhere outside of it with the magic wand to make a selection, invert the selection and contract it by 20, make a new layer below the window and paste paper 6 into it.  Do not deselect. 

Paste the tube again, resize 60% and position in the window.  Paste skele, resize 60%, drag below the tube and place in position.  Invert the selection and hit delete on both skele and the tube, deselect, apply the drop shadow to skele and the tube and change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light”.  Apply the drop shadow to the window twice.

Paste the  noose above the window, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste bow 2, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the wrapped scissors, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in positon on the fence erasing some so they are hooked around it and apply the drop shadow.

Paste smoke, resize 40% and place in position.  Use your erasure with the opacity on 10 to fade out the hard edges.

Paste the spider from the sampler, resize 20% and duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

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