This background consists of 7 layers that utilize 5 different plug-ins. By varying the gradient and the merge modes, I came up with this blast of stars. Then I had to have something to plop on top of my background. Unfortunately, it was late, and I wasn't driven by creativity. I went to my old images and found an interesting spiral and adapted it to the color scheme suggested by my background. The final result looks pretty good, if I do say so myself.
