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 of choice.



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


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 700 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 1 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize it 95%.

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

Paste glitter heart, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste word art 1, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 2, resize 40% and place in position.

Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 2 into it, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

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

Paste splatter below the frame and paper, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste flower, resize 25%, drag below the heart, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste button above the heart, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste leaves above the splatter, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste needle, resize 60% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste lights on the top, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste bouquet, resize 50% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste bling, resize 70%, place in position, apply the drop shadow and do some erasing or cutting and pasting to wrap it around the tube.

Check your layers and make any adjustments, I made my mask a tad smaller, then when you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
