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 beautiful tube “Crowned Crane” from
I really love this tube!
You can purchase it at

The kit is “Coastal Craze” from
and is available at

You will need my mask

Font of choice.





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


Open the mask and mirror and flip it.

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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask, resize it 90%, duplicate it and merge the copy down on to the original.

Paste frame 1, resize 55%, select the interior of the frame with you magic wand and expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below it and paste paper6 into the selection, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and move into place.

Paste element 42, drag below the merged frame and move into place.

Paste element 29, resize 60% and duplicate, resize the copy another 80% and mirror it, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 9, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11 on the top, duplicate, move the copy over to the right and down a little, duplicate again, mirror and flip this copy, resize it 80% and position lower.

Paste element 19, resize 50%, position below all the sand layers and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 46, resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Pate element 14, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 43, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 55%, position between the two larger sand layers and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Pate element 39, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21, resize 35% drag below the lamp and duplicate, position the orginal to the right of the lamp the copy to the left.  Duplicate the original again, bring it above the lamp and erase the top stop so the smaller one at the bottom looks like its in front of the lamp.  Apply the drop shadow to the two copies that are behind the lamp only.  You might light to merge this group together so you don’t move anything.

Paste spray 4, resize 60%, mirror and move into place.

Paste element 33, resize 40%, position below all the pebbles and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4 above the two larger sand layers, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20 on the top, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste the two chicks, resize also 28%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

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