RE: make art like this
paint some squiggles in different colors leaving spaces in between. Use white too.
do it on a transparent background.
export as a png
next open a new gimp
fill the whole page with black - bucket fill
import the squiggles and move them where you want
export

RE: make art like this
Interesting and very abstract. So much so, it took me a while just to make out it is a glowing crystal doggy?

I will just point you at some tutorials and do your best.
Crystals in Photoshop
Smoke Tutorial in Photoshop
A bunch of fire tutorials in Photoshop

Study those tutorials they will get you started. You shouldn't have much of a problem translating the instructions to GIMP.

Here's a Gimp tut that might help.

That site has some other tuts you might find useful. Click "Tutorials" at the top.
