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!

You will need my mask

Font is



I used a soft drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 30, blur 15.



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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 11 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste element 117 and resize 55%.

Paste the tube, resize 30%, move over a bit to the right and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 124, resize 60%, position below the tube,  erase the bottom of the trunk that shows and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 128 and resize 65%.

Paste element 57, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 94, resize 20% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 102, resize 25% and position on the left of the tube, duplicate, bring the copy to the top, mirror it and position on the right then apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 103 on the top and resize 50%, position on the left, duplicate, mirror the copy and position it below the top copy of element 102 then apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 127 on the top, resize 45% and rotate 110 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 87, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 88, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 91, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 25% and mirror, position below element 91 and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 25%, position between the copies of element 103 and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 126 on the top, resize 40% and position on the right side of the tag, duplicate, mirror the copy and resize it another 80%, drag below the tube and position on the left.

Paste element 2, resize 35%, duplicate, mirror one copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any adjustments. 

Paste element 5 just above the mask, resize 70% and place in position, activate the mask layer, select all, float and defloat the mask, invert the selection, hit delete on the owl, deselect, erase any of the owl’s foot that shows at the bottom of the tag and lower the opacity on him to around 80.

Paste element 129, resize 50% and position below the tube.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
