Add a new raster layer and floodfill with a linear gradient of your choice. I chose #f4f4f4 & #b68042. Deselect. Add a halftone effect using the same settings as before.

Merge these two tube layers together. On the gold squares layer, select all, float, defloat. On the tubes layer, selections, invert & press delete. Deselect. Duplicate your tubes layer, gaussian blur, 3.00. Set the blend mode to Screen, 100. On the original tubes layer, set the blend mode to Overlay, 50.
