Step 1

Create a new document / image with the size of your desktop (if you are unsure what size your desktop is then just press the PrtSc (Print Screen) button on your keyboard and Photoshop will automatically set the correct size! Handy tip there!)

Step 2

Now make some clouds by going to Filter -> Render -> Clouds

Step 4

Now add "plaster" to the clouds by going to Filter -> Sketch -> Plaster. Leave the settings to their default selection.

Step 5

Now we'll need to add a Motion Blur to it. So Filter -> Blur -> Motion Blur (Angle: 90, Distance: 999)

Step 6

Finally to add our finishing touch to it, right click the new layer and goto Blending Options and goto Gradient Overlay and use the following settings.

There you go and it should look very nice. (Like mine!)
