Now, for this I assume you have some brushes. If not, be sure to visit Deviant Art.

 

 

 

Step 1.

First, open up a canvas (Ill be using 400x120 px) and create some clouds.

 

(Filter > Render > Clouds)

 

 

 

Step 2.

Now, grab a brush and dot about some brushes in black. For this use some random opacity and flow. I use 70% for both.

 

Important: Do not brush on the clouds layer

 

Dot about 5/6 brushes (same or different kinds) for each layer. Ill be using 5 layers, and 1 final layer on top which will have a white brush on it.

 

 

 

Step 3.

Once you have around 5 layers change the layer's blending properties. I used here; soft light and multiply. But any can be used.

 

 

 

Step 4.

Add a brightness and contrast layer.

 

(Layer > New adjustment layer > Brightness and contrast)

 

I used 10 brightness and 55 contrast.

 

 

 

Step 5.

Pretty much the same again. Add a Color balance layer.

 

(Layer > New adjustment layer > Color balance)

 

This time only goto the highlight and set the yellow to -50.

 

ALMOST DONE!

 

 

 

Step 6. A

Add a simple hue to it. Either by a layer or just CTRL+U the bottom layer (clouds)

 

 

 

Step 6. B

From step 5, you can follow Magictv's 1337 tutorial.

 

The above was my outcome.

 

I added a border and followed Magictv's advice.

Hope you liked my signature and found it helpful. :)

 

Have fun!
