1) Open Adobe Photoshop and create a new image, I used the dimensions 300 x 300, but any size will do for this effect. Set your foreground color to #999999 and your background color to #FFFFFF. Once you have done this, goto Filter > Render > Clouds and keep doing it until you get an acceptable set of clouds, as shown below.
