If you are Gimp users you should know the Sparks brush.it is the yellow brush at the bottom of the brush window of your program.
I really like when I use it but it gives only one color.here you can learn how to use this brush so you can have and other colors.

1.Open a new document and fill it with black color.we are going to use it as the background.
2.Go to the layers window create a new layer in transparency and add it to the image.name it green.
3.Go to tools choose green color then the bucket tool and fill the top layer.
4.Set the green layer to opacity overlay mode and select the background layer.
5.Choose the Sparks brush tool and paint to the bottom layer.you will get green sparkles!

You can use any color you like for the overladed layer.you can use different colors from other brushes or you can fill it with a gradient to have the result you want.

Good luck!

This works very well by setting the blend mode to Hue.

Yes it works better if you want the exactly color.overlay give other dimension to a color.you can get various of color results.
Everybody can play with the blending modes it is free. :)

Neat trick hue or color mode work equally well. =)
Throw a gradient (abstract 2) on the color layer once...pretty cool.
Thanks!

I think that's a typo - I think it should say overlay. Setting the layer mode to different ones gives different effects and colors.
