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 art of
I purchased my tube from
Unfortunately Deacon no longer sells his tubes
for tagging use but I think there are other suitable tubes
available if you do not have this one.

I used the freebie kit
 from

I used mask 88 from

Font is



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


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask then mirror the mask and resize it 95%.


Paste frame 1 and resize 65%.  Click with your magic wand anywhere on the canvas outside of the element to make a selection then expand the selection by 30.  Paste paper 1 as a new layer below the element and using my tag as a reference, position the paper in the frame, hit delete to remove the excess paper and deselect. 

Paste element 15 above element 1, resize it 65% and position in the frame.  With your oblong selection tool set to a rectangle and Feather set to 0, draw a selection around the top of the curtain similar to my screen shot below, hit delete to cut off the top of the curtain then right click and “Paste as a New Layer” to paste the part you cut off as a new layer and deselect.  Drag this top part of the curtain below element 1 and line the two parts up again.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame, close off the white background and mask layers, merge visible, reopen the closed layers and move the merged layer into position.



Paste element 46, resize 65%, drag below the merged layer and place in position.

Paste element 52, place in position, erase any of the trunk that shows on the right and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 56, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21 on the top, resize 80% and position on the left, duplicate, drag the copy below the original and move over to the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 18, resize 40%, drag below the cushions, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 37 on the top, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste your tube and resizing as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 90%.

Paste element 38, resize 30%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 51 and resize 25%, position on the left.  Duplicate and move the copy over to the right.  Duplicate again, mirror this copy, drag it above the tube and position on her left.  Duplicate the original once more, bring it to the top and place in front of the tube.  Apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 27, resize 20%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29 between the two top copies of element 51, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14,  resize 15%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste element 16 on the top, resize to fit your tube and place in position.  I resized mine 85%.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
