To fill the background in with black(1.c):
1. Use the Paint Bucket Tool
2. Select your colour (Black), as the Foreground colour
3. Then *Click* on your “Background” Layer – make sure you have selected that layer!

Okay :) Thanks !
The font I used for the title was ‘Braggadocio’ a kind of stencil font from Photoshop!
I hope that helps, thanks,
What was the font you used ?
this is step 5. which is where you make a new layer: set the Mode to Overlay (on the layers tab), then select the gradient ‘Full Saturation Spectrum’ and apply the linear gradient across the light stream using the Blend Tool. Click Screenshot to enlarge.
If you need any other help please comment!
Guide me in creating blends.
Please tell me as to how to create the spectrum layer in cosmic wallpaper.
