|More rust? per Nancy and Seth's request :) this is if for you folks.
1 Make a 500 x 50, 16 million color image. I used a black background on this example. Set Foreground color to White.
(Example of Foreground color set to White and Background color set to Black)

Linear Gradient Settings:
Fill Style = Linear Gradient
Blend Mode = Normal
Paper Texture and Match Mode = None
Follow the same settings under the Flood Fill Options

Repeats = 1
Apply Colorize Filter (Colors>Colorize) Hue = 30 Saturation = 80
|3 Add a new layer (Layers>New Raster Layer)
Pick the Picture Tube Tool and choose "Clouds" tube. Set the scale to 30%. Apply the tube as shown in the image below. You can download clouds tube from Jasc's website.

Click on Layers>Properties (Set Blend Mode=Darken)
Click on Layers>Merge>Merge All
