Suzz's Planetary Paint & Paste Inspiration

Hi!  Suzz here!  I was inspired by the paints and paste challenge to create a fun mixed media page for a special birthday boy turning 4 who loves planets! 

The background started with stenciling stars randomly using distress texture grit paste. Then a splatter of watered down white acrylic paint was applied randomly over the surface.  After the paint dried the next step was to spritz a variety of sprays over the surface.  Water was applied to blend the sprays and allow pooling of colors around the stars.   

After the background was complete, the planets were cut out using various die cuts.  I did some research on the various sizes of the planets and colors inspired form some online images.

The planets were all painted with various distress paints with a base coat of color and then different patterns were applied with coordinating colors. 

I then applied the planets on the background and mixed in a few different sentiments to inspire the birthday boy! 

Happy inking!
