Run the clouds filter under the "Render" drop-down menu.

Run the glass filter under the "Distort" drop-down menu using minimal smoothness and 14 distortion. Set the scaling at 50 per cent and the texture to blocks.
Set the blending mode to "Color burn" and use the paint bucket on the canvas, using a bluish colour.
Duplicate the layer and set the blending mode to Screen." Then blur that layer until you are happy with the results.
