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 a beautiful tube from
Anna Liwanag.
You can purchase the tube at

The kit is “Grandmas Garden” from
This is a really gorgeous kit and can be purchased at

I used 4flowermask (3) from

I used the Windows font
Impact.



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



Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 650 and fill with white.

Paste the mask on your canvas and resize it 27%.  Select all, float and defloat the mask, make a new layer and paste paper 7 into the selection, deselect and delete the original mask layer.

Paste element 2, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 65% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 2 and resize 55%.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 2, make a new layer below it and paste paper 8 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 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 35%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 60% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 35%, position behind the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 45, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12 again on the top, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 6, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 15% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments; I stretched the mask a little longer.

Paste element 11, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 30% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, 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.
