Step 3:

Choosing brush tool and go to brushes palette (fn+F5) and pick up Following Star. The spacing is very important and change the value is 100. Next, select Shape Dynamics, then Scattering and last one is Other Dynamics for the value use images below:

Step 4:

Create a new layer and change Blend mode to Color Dodge, then pick up brush tool and set the color is white and paint some stars. For that time, use big size, like 600-800 pixels. After that, Go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. For this first layer use 20 pixels for the Radius.

Step 5:
