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 beautiful art of

For the word art you will need the Windows front
Impact.

For the text I used the font



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 65, blur 15.


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

Paste element 32 and resize 35%.  Make a new layer, select all and paste paper 9 into the selection.  Go back to element 32, float and defloat it, invert the selection and hit delete on the paper to remove the excess, deselect and delete the original copy of element 32.

Paste element 33, resize 20% and rotate 90 degrees to the right.  Make a new layer, select all and paste paper 4a into the selection.  Go back to element 33, float and defloat it, invert the selection and hit delete on the paper the same as you did before and deselect.  Delete the original copy of element 33, move the paper copy into position and fill the black background colour with white.

Paste element 16 (you will not see it as it’s larger than the canvas), resize 20% and mirror.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and paste paper 4b into the selection, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

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

Paste element 31a, resize 18%, duplicate, merge the top copy down onto the original, drag below the merged frame layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 25 on the top, resize 22% and move into position.

Paste element 38, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 37, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 20% and duplicate, rotate one copy 40 degrees to the right, mirror the second copy and rotate it 60 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 4b, resize 11% and duplicate, mirror and flip the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 9c,  resize 23% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7b, resize 15% and rotate 100 degrees to the left, duplicate, merge the duplicate down onto the original, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3a, resize 7%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2a, resize 7%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Open the Impact font and type the world “moments” below the two roses, all in lower case, no foreground colour, background can be any colour, use the nodes to get the text the correct size then turn it into a raster layer.   Select the text, float and defloat it, paste paper 1 as a new layer, resize 15%, position so the bottom part is on the text, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect, delete the original text layer, apply an Inner bevel to the paper text layer as in my screenshot below and then apply the drop shadow.


Paste element 34 on the top, resize 15% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 48, resize 5% and rotate 40 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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