Alright. Star shape. And fill it in with white. Press control D to deselect. And you have this shape with you now. Now what you want to do is go filter, blur, radial blur. And you want to do amount, 100. Zoom, best. Press OK. Then you want to do it again. So go filter, this time it will be right at the top. Click that. Alright. Now go filter, stylize, find edges. Alright. Then press control I, invert. Alright. You should have something like this. Then what you want to do is go filter, distort, twirl. What you want to do is 300. Alright. Press OK. You should have this spinny thing effect. Now duplicate your layer, alright. Little filter, distort, twirl. This time you want to do minus 600. So it would be minus 300 in the back, because you just made it like that. Alright. Then you want to change the top layer, you want to change it to lighten or screen, whichever one you want. I'm going to go with screen. Alright. Then click on both layers while holding control, click on both layers. And merge layers. Alright. Duplicate the layer again. Change the mode to lighten and edit, transform, vertical. Alright. There we have it. This is going to be our effect. Our abstract background. Merge layers. Make a new layer. Choose a bright color. Brush size mine, brush size is 195. Make your any size you want and color in. and then change it to color. Make a new layer again, change your color. I'm going to have yellow. Alright.
