i start with a black background and then add stock images. like cities, mountains, storms. and mess with the properties and opacity. change it to lighten, or linear. things like that. my favorite thing to do tho is get a stock image with color, and blur it with the glaus blurr, usually about 65% will do the trick to give u a smooth blend of colors.
