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 beautiful art of
You can purchase the tube at
There is a tube with two lovely horses in the kit, check
out Purrr's tag at the bottom of the tut for her result using these horses.

The kit is “Ranch Romance” from
and can be purchased at

I used mask 84 from
and mask 63 from Simone at

Font of choice.



Apart from the text, I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.



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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 8 into the selection, deselect, duplicate the paper, close off the top copy and apply Weescotslass’ mask to the original one.  Open the duplicate paper and apply Simone’s mask.

Paste element 41, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 5, resize 60% and rotate 90 degrees in either direction.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below the frame, paste paper 8 into the selection, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste the tube, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I recoloured by tube to match the kit.

Paste element 16, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 44, resize 40%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 51, resize 20% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 54, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 52, resize 45% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow,

Paste element 6, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 49, resize 25%, drag below the hat, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26 on the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 33, write your text with background colour #61523b and foreground closed off.  Resize the text and element so the text fits nicely and apply an inner bevel to the text as my screenshot below, then apply the drop shadow changing the horizontal to 2 and blur to 5.





Check your layers and when  you are happy, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
