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!

I used a fun kit called “Halloween Glam” by
Check out Vicki’s site to see where she sells her kits.

You will also need a mask, I used mask 1 
from the Halloween 2010 set by 
Vix.

I used the font



Please be sure to check out my “About my tutorials” page if this is the first tutorial of mine that you have followed.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 80, blur 10.


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

Open gemini_halloweenglam_p3, rotate it 90 degrees to the left and copy it, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 85%.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e16 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 80% and position in the top, left hand corner.  Duplicate and position in the bottom, right hand corner.

Open gemini_Halloweenglam_e3 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 80% and move up a little.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand and expand the selection by 30, make a new layer below it and fill with black, deselect.  We will come back to this later.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 80%.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e25 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e8 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini-halloweenglam_e9 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e37 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e62, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 55%, rotate 80 degrees to the right and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e45 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e20 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 40%, mirror, flip and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e37 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 37%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e68 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e38 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e28 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e41 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open gemini_halloweenglam_e63 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, drag down below the beads and position on the left.  Duplicate, move the duplicate over to the right.  Erase any parts that overlap hiding the join behind the bottle and apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Paste your tube again, drag it down so its between the frame and black layer, duplicate it, mirror the duplicate and place in position on either side.  Select the interior of the frame again, expand the selection as before, invert it and hit delete on both tube layers, deselect.  Change the blend mode on the tubes to “Hard Light” and lower the opacity to around 70.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.  I used my tube in the original size. 

Again, check the positions of your layers and when you are done, drop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
