Tutorial >> Create Artistic Double Exposure Effects in Your Photos

For my first tutorial in this series, I showed you how to give your photos a dreamy, summertime-inspired look using the lens flare filter in Photoshop Elements. One of the things I mentioned was that a lens flare often occurs unintentionally when taking photos, yet it can end up creating a really magical image.

I left there thinking that Corona glasses could only be made by the glassblowers and their fancy equipment. You can cut glass bottles at home using materials you probably already have on hand.
