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!

You will  need my mask

Font of choice.




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



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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 22 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize it 95%.

Paste element 124, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 88, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 123, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 89, resize 30%, position just above the mask and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube on the top, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 15, resize 25% and move into place below the tube.  Click anywhere on your canvas with your magic wand outside of the frame to make a selection, invert the selection and contract it by 10, make a new layer below the frame and paste paper 31 into the selection.    Paste the tube again, position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.   Change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste element 93, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 91, resize 35% and move into place.

Paste element 82, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 122, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 107, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 108, resize 20% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, 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 59, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 96 on the top, resize 30%, duplicate, mirror one copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 51, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 97, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers now.

Paste element 95, resize 30% and position behind element 97 on the left, duplicate and position this copy on the right in front of the telephone, duplicate again, bring this copy to the top, resize this copy another 70%, mirror it and position in front of the skulls, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 100, resize 15% and position behind the top copy of the leaves between the two skulls on the right. duplicate, resize this copy another 80%, flip it and position behind the leaves on the left, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 4, resize 25% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6 on the top, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers again, then when you are happy, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
