Step 12

Make a new layer and use a small brush with the color #1f242e to paint some flying hair strands for the model's head.

Step 13

Create a new layer and use the Ellipse Tool to draw a circle on the right of the canvas and pick the color #60a8ed. Change this layer mode to Color Dodge 100% and add a mask to this layer. Vary the brush's opacity to paint inside this circle to make it look like the screenshot below shows:

Step 14

Duplicate this layer and move it to the area below the circles. Right click it, choose Rasterize Layer and go to Filter > Liquify. Select the Twirl Clockwise Tool (C) to tweak the circle into two shapes as shown below.
Add a mask to this layer to reduce the opacity of the shapes to make them fade into the background. 

Step 15

Duplicate the first circle layer and use Ctrl+T to resize it to be smaller. Move it to the top left of the canvas and refine the mask.

Step 16

Create a new layer and select a small hard brush ( about 18 px) with the color #c073dd. Press F5 to change the settings of this brush:
Use this brush to paint colorful dots around the model and circles.

Step 17

Change this layer mode to Color Dodge 100%  and use a layer mask to erase the dots on the model's face and hair and reduce the opacity of the dots around the circles.

Step 18

Duplicate this layer twice and use Ctrl+T to move them to the top and bottom of the left. Use a soft black brush on each mask of these layers to reduce the dots visibility.

Step 19

Duplicate this layer again and right click this layer, choose Delete Layer Mask. Go to Filter > Liquify and select the Twirl Clockwise Tool to tweak the form of the dots as the screenshot below shows:
Move this part onto the circles and model and use a layer mask to erase or reduce the visibility of the shapes, making them appear more subtle.

Step 20

Duplicate this layer and use Ctrl+T to rotate it to the left. Use a layer mask to reduce the dot's visibility.

Step 21

Duplicate the first dots layer and move it to the top of the layers. Use the Liquify Tool to tweak them into different shapes and place it in the top left of the circles. Change this layer mode to Pin Light 100% and use a soft black brush to reduce the visibility of the shapes on the right.

Step 22

Duplicate this layer twice and move them to the top right and below the circles. Use a soft black brush to refine the mask on each of these layers.

Step 23

Open the waterlily image and cut it out from the background. Place it in the lower of the left corner and duplicate it twice. Move them to the area near the top middle and the right corner of the canvas.
Add a mask to each of these layers and use a soft black brush to make some petals fade into the background.

Step 24

Select all the waterlily layers and hit Ctrl+G to make a group for them. Change the group's mode to Normal 100% and make a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer within this group. Alter the Saturation settings:
