Move into position.
Tap the delete key.

Copy and paste Fog as a new layer.
Move into position – see my tag for reference: (without looking at the name of the element I thought it was water so I used it as a water puddle)
In your layers pallet be sure it’s below the tube layer that’s positioned in front of the frame.
Copy and paste Basket as a new layer.
Resize 40%
Move into position - see my tag for reference.

Duplicate the tube layer that’s positioned in front of the frame.
Move below the original tube layer and position it so that it looks like the reflection in the water.
