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 drop shadow unless otherwise stated of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


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

Open Vaybs’s mask and rotate it 90 degrees to the left.

Open and copy Paper11-GI_Witchy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.

Open Mask-GI_Witchy.  We are going to use this mask as a layer so paste it on your canvas, resize it 65% and move it up a little.  I erased the small piece right at the top as it stuck out a bit.

Open WordArt2-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.   Resize 90%, position along the top and change the blend mode to “Soft Light”.

Open Frame7-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, 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.  I resized my tube 75%.

Open Weeds-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Leaves-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position, erase any that shows below the tube and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open Flower2-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.   Resize 30%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open Basket-GI_Witchy, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Pumpkin1-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open PentBacking-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.   Resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Ribbon2-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45% and position on the left, duplicate and move the duplicate over to the right.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers. 

Open Label-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.  Resize 22% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, drag down below the top ribbon, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open Potions-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer on the top, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

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

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

Open CandyCorn-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25%, drag down below the cat and position on the left.  Duplicate twice, mirror the first duplicate and position on the right, position the second duplicate in the middle. 

Open Leaf2-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube again, or the close up if you have one, duplicate it and close the original, crop if you need to as you just want the face.  Apply the 20/20 mask twice and then copy it and paste as a new layer.  Drag down so it’s just above the word art, resize as needed and place in position.  Go back to Vaybs mask, select, float it and defloat it, invert the selection, click on the face and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay”.  I used tube 2 in its original size. 

Open Light-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.   Drag up so it’s just below the main tube, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open Bats-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 60%, erase the bat that is the furthest out on the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 

Open Web-GI_Witchy and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 70%, duplicate, merge the top copy down onto the original copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow changing the vertical and horizontal to 2 and blur to 5.

Check your tag again on a white background and on a black background, then crop, add your copyright infromation and text and save on a transparent background as a png.
