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 again used the tube “Matt” from
 I purchased this tube from PSP tubes Emporium but
a similar tube called “Revolver” can be purchased from

I used the kit “My Hero” from

Carita and 
that can be purchased separately or with a
Discount using a code from

I used mask 1 from
Dees’Sign Depot
mask 0572 from
and mask 3 from

Font of choice.



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


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 850, select all, paste paper 1 into the selection and apply Dee’s mask.

Make another layer, paste paper 1 into the selection and apply Trese’s mask with the “Invert mask data” box checked.

Open another transparent canvas 750 by 750 pixels and fill with white.  Copy Dee’s mask, paste it on this canvas and resize 90% then copy Trese’s mask, paste it on the canvas and resize 95%.  You can delete the original copies of these masks now.

Make another layer, select all, paste paper 9 into the selection, deselect and apply Nae’s mask, again with the “Invert mask data” box checked and then drag this mask between the other two masks. 

Paste element 50, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 10, resize 50% and rotate 80 degrees to the right.   Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 7 into the selection and deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into position.

Paste frame 8, resize 65% and mirror, drag below the merged frame layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 54, resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 44, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, apply the drop shadow, place in position and change the blend mode to “Hard Light”.

Pate element 55 on the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 75% but it may be a different size from the Factory.

Paste element 19, resize 50%, drag below the tube, duplicate twice, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 43, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
