Using Path Selection tool (A), select the path, duplicate it (Ctl-C, Ctrl-V), move new path a bit to top-right, scale up (Ctrl-T) and click Substract button (2nd fo the 4 buttons on top bar)
Then, as always, set blend mode to Overlay, and opacity to 40-60%. The water drop is ready!
Make as many water drops and you like!
The very last touch is to make reflection of falling spider in the water drop. Make all layers invisible, except the layers belonging to falling spider. Select bottom half of it, copy merged (Ctrl-Shift-C).
Create new document (square), paste (Ctrl-V) and Flip Vertically (from Edit menu - Transform)
to Filters menu - Distort - Spherize, and apply the
filter. Adjust % to your liking (60-70 may be enough).
Switch to Eraser (E), select large soft brush, and remove bottom part of image.
Now, select all (Ctrl-A), copy (Ctrl-C), close document, paste into our artwork document, and set blend mode to Overlay!
