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 awesome art of
You can purchase Enys’ tubes from

The kit is “Black Star” from

You will need my mask
  
Font of choice.





I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 15.


Open a new transparent canvas 750 b7 800 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 8 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

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

Paste Castle 2, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Stairway, resize 40%, position below the castle and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Frame 8 on the top, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste Frame 7, resize 55% and rotate 70 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Cluster 3WA, resize 40% and move into position.

Paste Mesh just above the mask layer, resize 25%, duplicate, mirror the copy and place in position.

Paste Black Stars, resize 80% and place in position.

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

Paste Charm, resize 25%, duplicate, merge the copy down onto the original, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Window above frame 7, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste Rose 2, resize 20%, mirror and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Ribbon 3 on the top, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Rose 1, resize 15% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers now and make any adjustments.

Paste the tube just below frame 8, resize 58%, apply the drop shadow, place in position and erase the parts at the top, left side and bottom that show outside the frame then erase the parts of the frame that show above the bottom part of the tube out to the candles and the castle.  I also erased around that little group of leaves at the top of the tube to bring them above the frame.

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

Paste Sparkle Trail on the top, resize 80% and place in position.

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