Tutorial using the Aqua Blue tube by Arthur Crowe, and the matching Aqua Blue kit by KizzedByKelz. 

Supplies Needed

Paint Shop Pro - I am using X5, but any should do

The Aqua Blue tube and the Aqua Blue scrap kit, these are available in a set at Arthur Crowe's Factory  HERE 

Any mask of your choosing, I chose a mask from WeScottLass

Any color or gradient and font of your choosing

Okay, let's begin. The first thing you will need to do, is to start a new image in Paint Shop Pro (PSP for short). To do this, look at the top left corner, and click on FILE>NEW> a pop up will open...set width and height to 600, make background white, and make sure the transparent box is not checked. Click okay, and you now have a blank size base for your tag, already sized and ready to go.

***(NOTE: there is a layers menu on the right side of your screen..if u do not see it then look up top and click VIEW>PALETTES>LAYERS and it will open up...u use this layer to bring things to the front..say for example u put a shoe on the tag but it went behind a bucket and u want it in front of the bucket...while holding the left click button on your mouse or touch pad down, you would slide the shoe to the layer the bucket is on..it would now be in the front...use this anytime u want to bring something to the forefront.)*** 

I have chosen a mask from WeScottLass.  Okay, in Paint Shop Pro (PSP) click FILE>OPEN>and open the mask you have chosen, then start a new image FILE>NEW>600x600 and transparent needs to be checked.  Choose color or gradient on the right side layers menu; I chose a hot pink color...flood fill the new blank image with the color or gradient..the flood fill is the paint bucket shape. Now go to the top layers menu and click NEW MASK LAYER> from image...a pop up opens..click on the title of the mask you chose in the drop down menu. now go back to the side layers menu and click on the square that has the layers combined...right click it then click merge..the merge group..and voila..you have a mask layer now! :) Now, let's add a nice paper to add some color to your tag. To do this, click on FILE>OPEN> find paper #4 and open it, then click on the pick tool on the tool menu on the left (it looks like an arrow)..a white dotted line will surround the paper, now click EDIT>COPY> find the image 1 tab at the top and click on it...you will do this every time to paste new items as you want to keep building on Image 1 (this is your tag), now click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Decrease the size to fit. Slide the mask to the layer the paper is on in your side layers menu, so your mask is on top.

Now, let's go ahead and add our tube, as we will be building everything else around her. Okay, click FILE>OPEN> find your full view of your Aqua Blue tube, and open her then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. I removed all the tattoos  while removing the words and background (you do this using the side layers menu..click on the eyeball and make it go away for things you want gone). Reduce her size by 65% and place her centered on the tag.  Now click on the keyboard and open it, then click EDIT>COPY> Click on the Image 1 tab again and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Increase the size by 10% and place it centered on the tag; use the side layers menu to slide the tube back to the forefront. 

Now, let's add some other items to start adding depth and dimension to our tag! Click FILE>OPEN> find the Hand bad and open it , Reduce the size by 90% and place it on the lower right between the tube's leg and arm. Now click FILE>OPEN> find the paper #3  and open it- then use the cut tool to cut out a circle shape fro the paper, then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab, then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER.  Reduce the size of the circle by 20% and place it on the top left area. Now click FILE>OPEN> find the close up #2 of the tube and open it- again use the cut tool and cut out a circle...trying to cut above her shoulder area, then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab, then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce the size by about 20% and place it on the paper circle. Now open the frame and place it around the paper and pic. Now, go to Effects and change the pic to back and white. 

 Okay now click FILE>OPEN> find the guitar and open it, then click EDIT>COPY>click on the Image 1 tab again then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce the size by 85% placing it on the bottom left of the tag, at an angle. Okay, click FILE>OPEN>find the corset #2 and open it and then click EDIT>COPY>click on the image 1 tab and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. reduce the size by 85% and place it on the left side, with a part of it on the guitar. 

Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the sparkle swirl and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce the size  to the top left side quarter of the tag...then duplicate it 3 more times, taking the tag in quarters.  Now click FILE>OPEN> find the cupcake and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Decrease the size by 90% and place it in the bottom left between the corset and the guitar.

Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the paper #6 and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce the size by 40% and place on the tag diagonally, so the points are at the top and the bottom.  Now click FILE>OPEN> find the paper #5 and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Decrease the size by 25% and place  straight, where it is inside the silver sparkle paper.

Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the mouse and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce the size by 85% and place a t the bottom left by the corset; use the side layers menu to slide it to the forefront of the sparkles. Now click FILE>OPEN> find the pink sparkles and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Decrease the size by 65% and place on the black and white pic, but have it surrounding the pic, and not on it...then keep duplicating the pink sparkles and adding them all over the teal paper...everywhere you think they need to be. Now Click FILE>OPEN>find the turquoise sparkles and open it then click EDIT>COPY> click on the Image 1 tab again, and then click EDIT>PASTE AS NEW LAYER. Reduce the size by 65% and keep duplicating and placing them all over the pink paper, wherever you think they need to be.

Reduce the size by 95% and place one in each corner of the tag on the pink paper layer. 

You did it! You now have finished this tag. You will need to add copy wright info to your tag, as it is the law. Finally, add a name in any font and color of your choosing.
