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 fabulous art of Barbara Jensen.
You need a license to use Barbara’s art, available
from her store here.

The kit I used is called “Mint Delight” and is by
This is a beautiful kit with lots of elements in a beautiful colour scheme.
The kit is also available at Barbara’s store.

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

Font is Impervious, here.


Don’t forget to sharpen up those elements after resizing/rotating as this makes them a little blurry; you can check out my Tips and Tricks page if you need more info.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 90, blur 7.



Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open pp1 and copy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 85%

Open el27 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 80%, move over to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Open el11 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, move over to the left and apply the drop shadow.

Open el7 and paste as a new layer.    Resize 55%, rotate 90 degrees to the left and then flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el26 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%,  place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your main tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  If you are using one of Barbara’s layered tubes, duplicate it and close the original, choose your layer options and copy merged.  I resized my tube 70%.

Open el1 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 65%, drag down below the tube and place in position.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20.

Open pp8 and copy, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection, do not deselect.

Open your tube again or the close up if you have one, mirror it and paste as a new layer, resize as necessary and position inside the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess tube, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and the tube and change the opacity of the tube to “Soft Light”.

Open el20 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position on the top of the frame and apply the drop shadow.

Open el8 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el22 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el13 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55% and duplicate, position one flower on the clock and one on the ivy and apply the drop shadow to both.

Open el14 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el5 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el21 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40% and duplicate.  Position one flower on the left and the other on the right dragging it down below el5.

Open el15 and paste as a new layer making sure its just below the main tube layer.    Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el19 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el9 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el10 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el29 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el12 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 30%, mirror and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, then when you are happy, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text.

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