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 amazing art of Screaming Demons.
You need a license to use Screaming’s Art,
available at Scraps and the City.
I just love Screaming Demon's art!

The kit I used is called “Zombie” and is by
The kit is available also at Scraps and the City
and is currently marked down to just $1!

You will also need a mask, I used Insatiable Dreams mask 565, here.

Font is Aajax Surreal Freak, here.




My usual reminder to you to sharpen up your elements after resizing/rotating, otherwise they will look a little blurry; check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10 unless otherwise noted in the tutorial.



Open a new transparent canvas 625 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open snp-zombie-papers04 and copy.   Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Open snp-zombie-elements32, paste as a new layer and move over a little to the right.

Open the paper again and copy, click inside each oblong section of the element with your magic wand to select it and expand the selection by 7, paste the paper as a new layer below the element, resize it 40%, place it in position, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.  Apply the drop shadow to the element and merge it down onto the paper.

Open snp-zombie-elements01 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, drag down below the merged layer and place in position, apply the drop shadow changing the vertical and horizontal to 2 and blur to 5.

Open snp-zombie-elements19 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and place in position.  No need for a shadow on this element as it has a halo.

Open your tube, paste as a new layer and bring to the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change the settings back).  I resized my tube 60%. 

Open snp-zombie-elements40 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, drag down below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements33 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements51, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements41 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, drag down below element 51, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements24 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements08 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements48 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements31, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 35% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements29 and paste as a new layer.    Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements34 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements42 and paste as a new layer.    Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open snp-zombie-elements07 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50% and rotate 40 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Open snp-zombie-elements02 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 80% and drag down so its just above the razor, place in position and apply the drop shadow, again changing the vertical and horizontal to 2 and blur to 5.

 When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here. As always, I would love to see your result and include it in the gallery!
