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!

Font is 



Apart from the frame, I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 65, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 800 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 5 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste spray 17 and resize 80%.

Paste the frame and resize 60%, select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 40, paste paper 4 below the frame, invert the selection, hit delete on the paper and deselect.  Apply a drop shadow to the frame with vertical and horizontal both set to 0, opacity to 100 and blur to 20.

Paste element 51 and resize 75%.  Position this element quite high up in the frame and erase the part of the frame that shows below it. 

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

Paste element 47 and place in position below the frame and paper layers.

Paste spray 16, drag above the bridge, resize 60% and position so a little shows along the bottom edge of it.

Paste element 37, drag it below the bridge, resize 60%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, resize it another 80% and drag it below the original copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 16, resize 30%, drag below both sand layers, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 55 just below the bridge, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 70, resize 35%, duplicate twice, mirror two copies, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 54, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 25, resize 15%, drag below element 54, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 46, resize 18%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 57, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste element 19 above the frame, resize 40% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 2, resize 80% and place in position lining it up with the surf on the paper.

Paste spray 7 and rotate 90 degrees to the right, drag below spray 2 and position so it shows on the right just below it then erase the part that covers the paper.

Paste element 52b, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 52, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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