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!

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.



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

Open the mask and mirror it, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste paper 26 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste element 129, resize 66% and move into place.

Paste element 157, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 178, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 114, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 174, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open frame 15, duplicate it and close the original then resize it 50%.  With your freehand selection tool on the settings in my first screenshot below trace around the centre part of the frame as shown in my second screenshot.






Make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 26 into the selection, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame, merge the frame down onto the paper, copy this merged layer and paste on your tag.

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

Paste element 132, resize 40%, drag below the merged frame, duplicate, mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 9, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 161, resize 30%, position along the bottom of the flames on the right and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 49 on the top, resize 15% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 48, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 103, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 37, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 96, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Pate element 53, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 105, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 78, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

paste element 80, resize 15% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 74, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 44, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste element 132 again this time just above the tube, resize 70%, place in position erasing the higher frames on the left and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 184 on the top, resize 30% and move into place.

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