“Lost Romance” is a FTU scrap kit created by Scrap Dimensions and can be downloaded from her blog here. Please leave a thank you when downloading.
It’s a small gesture for hard work given freely.

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a transparent 700 X 700 image.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste the Mirror as a new image.
Resize 70%.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Branch 1: Resize 50%
Candle: Resize 25%. Duplicate, resize 80%
Box: Resize 25%
Key: Resize 25% and 70% Free rotate right 85 degrees
Feather: Resize 25% and 70% Free rotate right 40 degrees
Dragonfly 2: Resize 25% Free rotate right 30 degrees
Dragonfly 2: Resize 25% Free rotate left 30 degrees
Sofa: 25%
Umbrella: Resize 70%

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Select All
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.
Merge Group.

I wanted my tube and the candles’ reflection in the mirror:
Duplicate/Mirror only the things you wanted reflected in the mirror.
Rename them. I renamed mine:
Mirror Tube
Mirror Candle 1
Mirror Candle 2
Close out all the layers that are in the way of the mirror.
Using your Freehand Selection Tool outline the mirror:

Open up the layers that are to be the reflections.
Number of pixels: 53
Highlight each layer and tap the delete key until you have the feathered look you want.
Lower the opacity to around 26 - 31 or so.
Tip: Be sure the “mirrored images” are beneath the images outside the mirror in your layers pallet.

Add your copyrights.

Add your name.

Crop your image.

Resize all layers 80%.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
I’d love to see your results and show it off in my Show Arena.
