Hi Neb,
I would think the most commonly used method is to create a new layer, select some nice soft colours for your background and foreground colours and the go into Filter>Render>Clouds and you can keep hitting control+F to run the filter till you get something you like. You can also use other filters on the result. I've also used a scene from andother landscape and heavily blurred it to some effect.
Hope that is of some help.

Check out this thread. It is one of my favorite ways to make a new background for an indoor image.

With a bit of creativity, you can do amazing things with it.

HTH, Margaret
