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 fabulous layered tube “Grape Juice”
from the latest pack 86 by
You can purchase the tube at

The kit was inspired by Michi’s April 2016 bonus tube by
and can be purchased at

I used mask 1 from set 146 by

Font of choice.




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



Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 1 into the selection and apply the mask.

Paste element 7, resize 70% and duplicate, position on copy towards the top on the right and the second towards the bottom on the left.

Paste element 3, resize 95% and position towards the bottom on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position towards the top on the right then apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 17, resize 75%, place in position and change the blend mode to “Hard Light”.

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

Paste element 14, resize 50%, drag below the tube and place in position.  Click anywhere on the canvas with your magic wand outside of the element to make a selection, invert the selection and contract it by 10, make a new layer below it and fill with colour #63482a.  Mirror the tube and paste it as a new layer, position in the element, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Luminous (L)” and lower the opacity to around 70.   Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste element 1, resize 70%, drag below the clock and place in position.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate and resize it another 80%, drag above the frame and place in position.  Apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 28, resize 45%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and duplicate it again.  Place the original on the left and the two copies on the right all below the frame/tube/paper layers and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste the wordart above the frame, resize 65%, apply the drop shadow, change the blend mode to “Overlay” and place in position.

Paste elemnent 19, resize 25% and mirror, position below the main tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 30% and duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

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

Paste element 27 on the top, resize 15% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 34, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments, then crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
