As always, start with new document and fill it with solid color.
Use very large brush, different colors (similar to main color) and gaussian blur (with large radius) to fill background with chaotic color variations.
Use the following filters:
- noise / add noise
- sketch / water paper
- artistic / sponge
- artistic / water color
For each filter, adjust settings carefully and experiment to achieve natural" look
Here is the photo that I took in Mont Saint Michel. Copy it to the document...
select the layer containing the photo, change its blend mode to Multiply" and opacity to 80%. Duplicate layer (Ctrl-J)
in default brush set, there is a brush called Rough Round Bristle. Select it, create new layer, and fill it with chaotic black and white strokes.
set this layer blend mode to overlay and opacity to 50%.
one final touch is the trees growing around the screen. I used ContextFree software to generate several trees...
...and then copied them into the document. That's all!
