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!

You will need mask 3 from Set 2 from

Font of choice.




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


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

Paste the mask and resize it 35%.  Select all, float and defloat the mask, make a new layer, paste paper 12 into the selection, deselect and delete the original black mask layer.

Paste frame 6 and resize 45%.  Select the interior each section of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, paste paper 12 again below the frame, resize it 45%, position in the frame, invert the selection a hit delete on the paper.  Mirror the tube then paste it on the canvas, resize it 45%, position in the frame and again hit delete, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay”.

Paste spray 4, resize 80%,  mirror, and position along the bottom of the frame.  Paste the spray again, resize 75% and position further down on the mask.  Paste element 41, resize 75% and position on the top over the two sprays.

Undo the mirror on the tube and paste it again on your canvas, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 38, position below the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 40, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 35b, resize 50% and rotate 40 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11b, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13b, resize 25% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16b, resize 36%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17a, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 38 again, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 48, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 42, resize 17% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste word art 1 on the top, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 18%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 33, resize 18%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 36, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers now and make any adjustments.

Paste elements 43a and 43c, resize each 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
