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 tube ”Officer Friendly” from
Barbara Jensen.
This tube is part of pack 110 and can be purchased at

The kit is “Oenophile” from
Karmalized Scraps
and can also be purchased at

You will need the png version of mask 324 from

Font of choice.





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


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 800 pixels and fill with white.

Paste the mask and resize it 90%, select all, float and defloat it, make a new layer, paste paper 3 into the selection, deselect, delete the original black mask layer and move he paper copy up and to the right.  When I had finished my tag I duplicated this mask, moved the copy down and to the left and did some erasing so just a little showed at the bottom.

Paste element  31, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  22, resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element  16, resize 45%, position behind the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  17, resize 30% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  24, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  8, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element  20, resize 55%, position on the right, duplicate, move the copy over to the left and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element  21, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  1, resize 15%, duplicate, mirror one copy and rotate it 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element  35 on the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  23, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  24 again,  resize 50%, duplicate, mirror the original copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element  37, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  5, resize 23%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  24 again, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  10, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  7, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  36, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  2, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  14, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  33, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element  15, resize 6%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  13, resize 6%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 1, resize 60% and move into place.

Check your layers and make any adjustments (remember to duplicate the mask), then crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
