For starry background:
1. Add a new layer above your photo layer.
2. Fill your new layer with black. Your photo won’t be visible for a little while.
3. If your program allows, convert the newly filled layer to a smart object. Note: This is not a crucial step. Converting to a smart object allows you to modify your filter layers (see below) at any time in the process. If you can’t convert to a smart object, you may have to play a bit more until you get a result that you like.
4. Go to the Filter menu and choose Noise, then Add Noise. I set the amount to 30%. Check Gaussian and Monochromatic, then click ok to close the dialog box. You should see a black layer with random white dots.
5. Go back to the Filter menu and choose Blur, then Gaussian Blur. I chose a radius of 3.0 Pixels.
6. Add a Level Adjustment layer above your new black star layer. Clip the adjustment layer to the black star layer. Now, drag the white slider over to the far left until your numbers look something like 24 1.00 40. Basically, all three sliders (black, gray, and white) will be very close together on the left side of the dialog box.
7. Add a layer mask to your black star layer. Then turn the layer visibility off.
8. Click on your photo layer. Using either the magic wand tool, quick selection tool, or lasso tool (whichever works best for you and your photo) outline the area of your photo where you DON’T want the stars. Go back to your star layer, and with the layer mask selected click delete.
9. Turn the star layer back on and change the blend mode to Screen.
10. You can play with your stars by adding different colors (hue saturation layer or maybe a light leak) to change the look.


Thanks for looking :-)

process...
I started with one of the solids from APP Aspera. I extracted the little girl and her blanket from the photo I had (she was sitting in front of what looked to be a large hedge). She was very faded so I duplicated her and set the second image to soft light. I added the starry background layer. I duplicated the girl and flipped her to make the reflection. The opacity was lowered on the reflection to make her more transparent. I added the MM Star elements to the right, then added some brushes and transfers from APP Aspera over the girl and her blanket to give them some dimension and a little color. Put on a title and journaling (some my own and some modified from two quotes) and it was done.
