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 layered tube “Razor Sharp” from pack 67 by
Barbara Jensen.

This is a lovely kit with some great elements, I really enjoyed
working with it.

I used mask 2 from set 16 by

Font is



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


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste element 37, resize 80% and move up.

Paste frame 1, resize 40%, paste the frame again, resize this copy 48% and align the two frames up.

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

Select the interior of the larger frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, paste paper 6 below the frame, resize it 40%, position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete. Paste the close up tube mirrored, resize 80%, position in the frame and hit delete, paste element 40, resize 80% and again hit delete, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and change the blend mode to “Hard Light”, duplicate the wire, merge the top copy down onto the original and apply the drop shadow to the wire and the frame.

Repeat the above with the smaller frame with the tube resized 60% and not mirrored and the paper recoloured #598c9c.

Paste element 7, resize 40% and drag right down to just above the mask.  Rotate one copy 50 degrees to the left and position at the top, rotate one 30 degrees to the left and position on the left and the last 40 degrees to the right and position on the right.  Apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 16 below the tube, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 35, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 39, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 20% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 25% and duplicate, flip one copy and poistion to the left of the tube, move the second copy over to the right and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 23, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4 on the top, resize 30% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 15% and rotate 40 degrees in either direction, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

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