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 gorgeous layered tube “Time Out”
from the latest pack 79 by
You can purchase the tube from

I used the kit “Fabulous” by
This kit certainly lives up to its name and can also be purchased at

I used mask 84 by
and halftone mask 2 from

Font of choice.



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


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 3 into the selection, deselect, duplicate the paper, close off the copy and apply the Weescotslass’ mask to the original.  Open the closed paper, apply the halftone mask to it and resize 90%

Paste frame 1, resize 80% and move up a little, select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 2, make a new layer below the halftone mask and paste the paper into the selection.  We will come back to this.

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

Paste element 23, resize 50%, drag below the tube, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, resize 60% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21, resize 80% and place in position.

Paste element 35, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 34, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 33, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 30%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste the close up tube between the halftone mask and the frame and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame and expand the selection as before, invert it and hit delete on the tube, deselect.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Duplicate the main tube, flip the duplicate and position it directly below the original.  Select Weescotlass’ mask, float and defloat it, it delete on the flipped tube and then lower the opacity to around 70.

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