In a tangent to the series on making backgrounds using only the tools and plugins that ship with After Effects standard and production bundles, this tutorial shows you how to make a simple frosty shape using only a mask, stroke and distortion blur to make a graphic element.
You can find the backgrounds and other tutorials like this in the After Effects pages at http://aftereffects.digitalmedianet.com.
