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 “Judith” by

You will need my  mask

Font is




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


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 800 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 9 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste frame 7 and resize it 50%.  Select the interior of each section of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 3, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 14 into the selection.  Go the tube and copy just the girl,  position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame and change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay”.

Paste the tube again, resize it 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 76, resize 80%, drag below the frame layers, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 56, resize 70% and position below the frame, duplicate, flip the copy and position it above the frame, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 14, resize 22% and position below the top copy of element 56.

Paste element 41 just below the main tube, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 63, resize 40%, duplicate, mirror the copy and position below the tube on the right, position the original on the left and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 9 , resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 35% and duplicate, position above each copy of element 63.

Paste element 32 on the top, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29, resize 30%, mirror and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 65, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21, resize 35%, duplicate, mirror one copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 12, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 61, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 67, resize 45%, place in position but don’t apply the shadow yet.

Paste element 66, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check you layers now and make any adjustments.

Duplicate the crown and bring the copy to the top, erase around the bottom part of element 66 so its entwined around the crown, apply the drop shadow to the bottom copy of the crown, merge the top copy down onto element 66 and then merge again down onto the bottom copy of the crown so things cannot be moved.

Paste element 70, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 77 and move into place.

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