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 tube “Engagement Ring” from
This beautiful tube comes with several dress colour options and can be purchased at

The kit is “Summer Love” from
This kit has some beautiful elements and can be found at

You will need mask 1 from

Font of choice.





I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 55, blour10.



Open a new transparent canvas 750 b7 950 pixels and fill with white.

Paste the mask and resize 38%.  Select all, float and defloat the mask, make a new layer and paste paper 17 into the selection, deselect, delete the original black mask layer and move the paper one over a bit to the left.

Paste element 93, resize 60% and move down to near the bottom of the mask, duplicate, resize the copy 90%, mirror and flip it, drag it below the original and position just little lower. 

Paste the main tube, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 82, resize 35%, position below the grass layers and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 149, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 76, resize 60%, position below the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 138, resize 35% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 139, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 141, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 136, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 27%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 58, resize 15% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 133, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 169 on the top, resize 32%, duplicate, merge the copy down onto the original, duplicate and merge down again and move into place.

Paste element 34, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 134, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 55, resize 18%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 5%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste the tube again just above the mask. I used the red dress on this one.  Resize 55% ,  mirror and change the blend mode to “Hard Light”, move into place, activate the mask layer, select all, float and defloat the mask,  invert the selection,  hit delete on the tube and deselect.

Paste element 68, resize 50%, mirror and move into place.

Paste element 10 on the top, resize 20%, place in position 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.
