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 tube 75-3 from
Anna Marine.
You can purchase the tube at

The kit is “Ada” from
Graphics of Fantasy.
A fantastic freebie kit you can find at
Thank you so much for the beautiful kits!


You will need my mask

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.  I recoloured a couple of elements in the kit; check out my Tips & Tricks page for tips on recolouring.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize it 95%.

Paste element  116, resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element  35, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  68, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  96, resize 30%, duplicate, merge the copy down onto the original, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  84, resize 30%, recolour, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 95 and position below the mirror, duplicate, mirror the copy, move it over to the left, drag below the original and erase the overlapping part,  apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element  92, recolour, resize 35%, place in position just below the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  52, resize 80%, duplicate, mirror one copy and position on the left, recolour the second copy blue, place in position erasing any that shows to the left of the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 114, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  105, resized 70% and move into place.

Paste element  122, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  62, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  82, resize 23% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  59, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  100 on the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  43, recolour, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  74, resize 20%, place in position above the candle and goblet and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  76, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  33, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  121, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  97, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  64, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  66, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element  98, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments, then crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
