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
bundle with package 39 and kit from
The bundle can be purchased at
I used tube 3 from the pack.
Please note that this kit may only be used with Enys’ tubes
as some of the elements contain her work.

You will need mask 242 by
and my mask

Font of choice.




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



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

Make a new layer, select all paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect,  duplicate the paper and close off the copy for now, apply my mask to the opened paper and resize it 90%.  Open the copy paper and apply Mizteeque’s mask and resize 110%.

Paste element 21, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 2 and resize it 85%, select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 5 and make a new layer below the frame, open paper 6, mirror it then copy and paste into the frame selection, open the tube, again mirror it and paste on your tag, change the blend mode to “Overlay” and position in the frame, invert the selection, hit delete on the tube and deselect.  Close off the white background and both mask layers, merge visible and then reopen the closed layers.

Paste the main tube again (remember to reverse the mirror), resize 55% and apply the drop shadow.  Move the main tube and merged frame into position.

Paste element 34, drag below the merged frame, resize 95%, move into place erasing the part that shows to the left of the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 60%, position behind the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 34 again, this time resize it 70% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 48, resize 25%, duplicate, drag below element 34, mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 39 on the top, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 34 again, resize 55% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 41, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2, resize 25%, position below the books and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 47, resize 25% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18 on the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 46 , resize 12% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Pastes element 43, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 48 again, resize 20%, duplicate, mirror the copy then duplicate it again, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 9, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste word art 1, resize 60%, duplicate, merge the copy down onto the original, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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.
