If your Psp doesn't accept my big brush you can use the layer that is in my zip !

I did : Image / mirror on my tube

Place that tube in the bottom right hand side corner of your tag

25- Open my tube"titre_golden_sphere_fairymist" or a text tube of your choice, copy it and paste it as a new layer; you may prefer to use a brush of your own or write out your own title on a new layer ! ( I chose that title because my tag was all in golden colours )

Place at the right place !

My title has already got a drop shadow; put your own drop shadow if your draw or write your title  

26- Open my tube " stars_golden_sphere_fairymist"or a tube of your choice, copy it and paste it as a new layer
