Start by opening a new image 200x200 pixels, and flood fill with your color of choice.
Set your airbrush to these settings,
shape-round,size-25,hardness-0,opacity-100,step 26,density-100
and set your foreground color to a lighter shade of your fill color

Step 2

Spray random lines on the image

Switch to a dark color, and spray on more lines in the same manner.
Then go to Images/Effects/Plugin/Eyecandy and apply
Swirl with these settings once or twice
Whirpool-78, smear length-12,twist-18,streak detail-10, warp and smooth both checked.

This is what it should look like now.

Apply noise (image effects/noise/add) at 27% uniform.

Switch your foreground color to white, and go to Image Effects/other or in PSP 7 Image Effects/Artistic and apply hotwax.
Then go to Image Effects/plugins/simple and apply quicktile.

That's it! Simple isn't it?
