Open GIMP start a new project make it 420 x 200.
Once you have done that go to http://planetrenders.net/
And find a render.
Here's an example http://planetrenders.net/renders/display...at=0&pos=1
Copy the image and then go back to GIMP
File > Open Location,
Paste the link.
Now copy the render and make a new layer on your project and paste the render. Use the move tool and put it in the middle of the image.
Now go to filter > distorts > shift.
Adjust it to around 147 then click ok.
Add a new layer and paste the render back in.
Now go to Filter > Noise > Pick.
Tone all of the settings up to 100, Then check randomize.
Now make a new layer and use the same render.
Now move it to your liking.
Now use a fractal once you downloaded it.
You can use any one you'd like.
Open as layers > "Your Fractal" .
Now press ctrl + L
Now Change the mode of the layer to additon.
Now move it around to your liking.
Once you have done that you should have something like this.
I change a few things while playing around with it.
But it should look something like that.

Now when people add text the usally fail
but here's what to do.
Find a nice text.
And add a text layer now go to
Filter > Render > Lava.
