Mixed Media Canvas Royal Blue

It's a new week and there's a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Let's Be Royal - From princesses to crowns, royal colors to jewels – this week, let’s be inspired by all things regal or royal.

I was inspired to create a wall hanging with royal colors.

This project was inspired by the royal blue colors and created for my son, Christopher, since he loves to collect things about traveling, ocean and blue.

After Gesso was applied on the canvas, the background was colored with Faber-Castell Blue Gelatos and covered with Glass Bead Glitter Gel. I used ColorBox Art Dauber and Gelatos distressed the edges of this canvas.

I cut various shapes of the patterned paper for the Fragments and glued them with the Fragments using Tombow glue. Then I added Tim Holtz 2015 Big Chat Stickers and pasted Fragments to embellish this canvas with Tombow glue and Foam Squares.
