With Html5 canvas element and a little jQuery magic, we can create a fantastic animated bubbles background for any container. No any CSS and image needed.

How to use it:

1. Create a Html5 canvas element in a container.

<div class="section-demo">
  <canvas id="demo"></canvas>
</div>

2. Load the latest version of jQuery library from Google CDN.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

3. The Javascript to render an animated bubbles background in the container you just created.

var WIDTH;
var HEIGHT;
var canvas;
var con;
var g;
var pxs = [];
var rint = 60;

$(document).ready(function(){
  WIDTH = window.innerWidth;
  HEIGHT = window.innerHeight;
  $('#container').width(WIDTH).height(HEIGHT);
  canvas = document.getElementById('demo');
  $(canvas).attr('width', WIDTH).attr('height',HEIGHT);
  con = canvas.getContext('2d');
  for(var i = 0; i < 100; i++) {
    pxs[i] = new Circle();
    pxs[i].reset();
  }
  setInterval(draw,rint);
});

function draw() {
  con.clearRect(0,0,WIDTH,HEIGHT);
  for(var i = 0; i < pxs.length; i++) {
    pxs[i].fade();
    pxs[i].move();
    pxs[i].draw();
  }
}

function Circle() {
  this.s = {ttl:8000, xmax:3, ymax:2, rmax:200, rt:1, xdef:960, ydef:540, xdrift:2, ydrift: 2, random:true, blink:true};

  // fill vars
  var crFill = [
    ['rgba(10,56,67,0)', 'rgba(10,56,67,1)'],
    ['rgba(11,67,99,0)', 'rgba(11,67,99,1)'],
    ['rgba(8,46,49,0)', 'rgba(8,46,49,1)'],
    ['rgba(7,64,60,0)', 'rgba(7,64,60,1)']
  ];

  // opacity var
  var opacityFill = "." + Math.floor(Math.random() * 5) + 1;

  this.reset = function() {
    this.x = (this.s.random ? WIDTH*Math.random() : this.s.xdef);
    this.y = (this.s.random ? HEIGHT*Math.random() : this.s.ydef);
    this.r = ((this.s.rmax-1)*Math.random()) + 1;
    this.dx = (Math.random()*this.s.xmax) * (Math.random() < 0.5 ? -1 : 1);
    this.dy = (Math.random()*this.s.ymax) * (Math.random() < 0.5 ? -1 : 1);
    this.hl = (this.s.ttl/rint)*(this.r/this.s.rmax);
    this.rt = Math.random()*this.hl;
    this.s.rt = Math.random()+1;
    this.stop = Math.random()*0.2+0.4;
    this.s.xdrift *= Math.random() * (Math.random() < 0.5 ? -1 : 1);
    this.s.ydrift *= Math.random() * (Math.random() < 0.5 ? -1 : 1);
    this.opacityFill = opacityFill;

    this.currentColor = Math.floor(Math.random()*crFill.length);
  };

  this.fade = function() {
    this.rt += this.s.rt;
  };

  this.draw = function() {
    if(this.s.blink && (this.rt <= 0 || this.rt >= this.hl)){
      this.s.rt = this.s.rt*-1;
    }
    else if(this.rt >= this.hl){
      this.reset();
    }
    con.beginPath();
    con.arc(this.x,this.y,this.r,0,Math.PI*2,true);
    con.globalAlpha = opacityFill;
    var newo = 1-(this.rt/this.hl);
    var cr = this.r*newo;
    
    gradient = con.createRadialGradient(this.x,this.y,0,this.x,this.y,(cr <= 0 ? 1 : cr));
    gradient.addColorStop(0.0, crFill[(this.currentColor)][1]);
    gradient.addColorStop(0.7, crFill[(this.currentColor)][1]);
    gradient.addColorStop(1.0, crFill[(this.currentColor)][0]);

    con.fillStyle = gradient;
    con.fill();

    con.closePath();
  };

  this.move = function() {
    this.x += (this.rt/this.hl)*this.dx;
    this.y += (this.rt/this.hl)*this.dy;
    if(this.x > WIDTH || this.x < 0){
      this.dx *= -1;
    } 
    if(this.y > HEIGHT || this.y < 0){
      this.dy *= -1;
    } 
  };

  this.getX = function() { return this.x; };
  this.getY = function() { return this.y; };
}
