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 mask 63 from Simone at

I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.



Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 800 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 8 into the selection, deselect, open the mask,  flip it and apply to the paper.

Paste element 109, resize 75% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 110, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 56, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize 27%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 88, resize 40%, position on the right immediately below the bridge, duplicate, mirror the copy,  move it down below the tree and position on the left, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 72, resize 50%, position above the bridge and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 106, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 105, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 74, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 108, resize 60% and duplicate, position one copy on the left above element 16 and the second below the bridge on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 27, resize 15%, position just below the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 111 on the top, resize 50%, duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 112, resize 45% and duplicate, position one on each side of the tag, duplicate again, mirror the copy and position in the middle, apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers now and make any adjustments.

Paste element 104, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 10% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 57, resize 45%, drag right down to position just above the mask and change the blend mode to “Hard Light”.

Paste the tube again, resize 80% and change the blend mode on this also to “Hard Light”.  Select the mask layer, float and defloat the mask, invert the selection, move the tube into position and hit delete on it, deselect.    Erase the part of the tube that shows on the left on the mask. 

Paste element 142, resize 60% and position above the bridge.

Paste element 43, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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