After that actions mess with the layer mode & opacity/fill. I tried Screen with opacity of 50%.

Now, time to add grid to our background. Create a new document with size of 4×4 pixels and draw a skew line by using Pencil Tool as on picture below.

Then go to Edit > Define Pattern and save it as pattern. After that go back to our main document and fill the grid pattern on the new layer. Change layer style to Overlay and set opacity to 30% up for this layer.

Time to add a little detail to the background. For this you can use Grunge brushes, which you can download from here. Use it on the new layer and set up layer opacity to 50%.

Now I want to make some dark places on the texture. For this create a new layer, then select Brush Tool (soft round brush with the size of 200 px) and make some black big spots on the canvas.
