Creating a new layer to start from something will be very reasonable.

Choose a color for the background - it's not always has to be white or black - right?

Now I'm beginning to create medium size shapes. I've chosen the elliptical shapes to be on my design so it probably means that a good way will be to stick to rounded angle shapes. I've also changing the color a little bit.

Well: looks quite ok I think. It stands out and has great color variation.

Now create a new layer on the top of all and fill it with orange to transparency gradient, from left to right.

And the final element will be the brush that I really like - I don't expected that I will use it so much in my work but this is it.
