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 layered tube “Wasteland Waif” by
This tube is from pack 92 and can be purchased at

The kit is “Steampunk Wasteland” and is also by
Barbara Jensen
and available at

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 725 by 750 pixels and fill with  white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 10 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize 90%.

Past element 10, resize 90%, duplicate, merge the copy down onto the original, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 28, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 25, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23 on the top, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26, resize 10% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste the tube again, this time I used her without the cape, drag down to just above the mask and place in position.  Click on the mask layer to activate it, select all, float and defloat the mask, invert the selection and hit delete on the tube, deselect 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.
