Then make many copies of the fishes' layer. Correct their sizes and placement, selecting the Free Transform option and Flip Horizontal selection. Then we should also change the distort level of several fishes, using the Distort option.

After that we should cut out the sphere and insert it on a new layer: File - New (ctrl+n). Decolorize it (shift+ctrl+u) and invert the colors (because the brush's preset recognizes only the black color). Apply also the next command: Edit - Define Brush Preset

Underwater Dance

Get back to the window with the processed picture and choose from the brush's list our new created brush, select the white color and change
  
the brush's adjustments on the Brushes' window, like you may see in the tables below:

Then change the brush's size and insert on a new layer several bubbles above the fishes and above the girl.

Underwater Dance

Mark them out, copy them and insert each of them on a new layer, above all the layers:

Underwater Dance

Mark out the stems of all the flowers and extend them, selecting the Free Transform option.

Underwater Dance

Copy several times the layers containing the lilies and combine them the way we want to.

Underwater Dance 

We should blur out the stem of each of the flowers, selecting the Turbulence Tool in the Liquefy window (the blurring can be done, using a big size brush. After that we may select a brush of small size to correct the thickness of the stems).

Underwater Dance

Merge down the layer containing the flowers, decolorize them and move off the black color out of the picture, applying Image - Adjustments - Selective Color.

Underwater
Dance

Insert on a new layer, above all the layers, the texture of the water.

Underwater Dance

Underwater Dance

Change the layer's type on Overlay.

Underwater Dance 

We want the lines and the colors look smoother (characteristic for an underwater atmosphere) that is why we should merge down all the layers: Layer - Merge Visible (shift+ctrl+e), copy the new layer and blur it out a little, selecting the Gaussian Blur.

Underwater Dance

Change the layer's type on Darken. The Crop Tool and Rectangular Tool may be useful in representing the picture's frame.
