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 lovely tube “Summer” from
You can purchase her at

The kit is “On the Pond” from
and can be purchased at

You will need my mask

Font of choice.





I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 65, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 1 into the selection, apply the mask and resize 95%.  We will come back to this to change the colour at the bottom of the mask later.

Paste element  103, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  17, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element  72, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  98, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  52, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  50, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  48, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  75, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  62, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element  101, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste word art 2, resize 65%, place in position below the large lily pad the tube is kneeling on and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  43, resize 65% and position below the word art.

Paste element  96, resize 80% and move into place.

Paste element  111, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  44, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  66, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  113, resize 20% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  71, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  38, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  99, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  65, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  2, resize 20%, place in position between the tube and the lily pad and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  100, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  114, resize 10% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  42 on the top, resize 8%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  41, resize 8%, place in position and apply,  drop shadow  and dab around the bottom of the stalk with your eraser on 20% opacity to blend it into the water.

Paste element  88, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  46, resize 23%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  108, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  14, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  22, resize 12% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, duplicate, mirror one copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Go back to the mask, select all, float and defloat it, make a new layer and paste paper 16 into the selection, deslect, erase all of this mask layer apart from the small bit at the bottom below the water then merge the piece that’s left down onto the first mask layer.

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