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!

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 55, blur 10.


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

Paste the mask and resize it 40%.  Select all, float and defloat the mask, make a new layer and paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect and delete the original black mask layer, duplicate the paper mask layer and merge the copy down onto the original.

Paste the main tube, resize 33%, move into place and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 3, resize 45%, drag below the tube, duplicate and move into place.   Select the interior of the left frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and fill with colour 452a1c.  Paste the main tube, resize 65%, position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect , apply the drop shadow to the frame and lower the opacity on the tube to around 50.  Now repeat the above with the right hand frame and tube mirrored.

Paste element 14, resize 60%, position just above the mask and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 41m , resize 60% and position on the left, duplicate, flip the copy and position it at the top, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 3, resize 30% and position on the right, duplicate, mirror the copy and position at the top, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 4, resize 30%, position on the left and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 56, resize 60% and position on the right, duplicate, mirror the copy and position on the left, duplicate the original copy and again, flip and position at the top, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 52, resize 60% and position at the top, duplicate, mirror the copy and position on the right, duplicate the original again, flip this copy and position at the bottom of the left frame, apply the drop shadow to each. Drag the left copy of element 41 above these blue flower layers.

Paste element 54 above all the frame layers, resize 60%, place in position erasing any that show to the right of the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 49, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 64, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 20% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, duplicate, mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  Paste the element again, resize 23% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 61, resize 80% and move into place.

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

Paste element 12, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 5, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 40, resize 60% and mirror, position below the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 58 on the top, resize 70% and move into place.

Paste element 16, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 25% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 47, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 50, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments, I made the mask a tiny bit bigger then crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
