    OK Spud. Here's how you do it.

    1. Create a canvas of 650x200 with a black background

    2. Create a rectangle of the same dimensions; clone it about 5 times

    On the lower of the stack, use a "Bars" fill, color one end of the
    gradient white, the other end a deep blue

    Do the same with the others in the stack, and blend them with the
    luminosity mode; about 64

    Do this with the other layers and you'll find that you can create a cool
    texture.

    One thing to remember is that you are creating a background underneath
    all those other rectangles and will end up stacking the fills, so this
    is where the luminosity (or any other) blend mode will suffice. Also,
    change the fills in the upper layers for variety.

    If you are seeing edges on the gradients that are "too sharp" then use a
    little gaussian blur (around 9) to soften.

    The main thing is to experiment with it.

    Here's a link to my version of it: (the 5 min. version)

    Good luck w/ it
