How To Make A Beautiful Masquerade Frame With Robin's Nest Diamond Drops

Hello there, Michelle here today to share with you my latest project for The Robin's Nest, 
a masquerade inspired wooden frame.



This project began with a $1 Artminds Wooden frame I purchased at Michaels and
a couple of sheets of jewel toned patterned cardstock in my personal stash, that I couldn't quite decide what to do with it.

The Robin's Nest had ALL the perfect elements I needed for this project, with the jewel toned Dew Drop color and shape varieties, Mini Mardi Gras Masks & beautiful cardstock like the distressed rich purple (flip side) of the Birthday Candles Glitter Cardstock & the Irresdescent Classic Glitter Swirl Vellum specialty paper.


*The masks that I have, had just a bit of a silver glitter splash on them, presently featured in the store are gorgeously glittered gold/silver & purple/green varieties, and would work beautifully in any project.



The best feature of my frame, the Diamond Dew Drops. The colors I chose were purple, blue, black, green & orange. I also used gold Mini Dew Drops in metallic gold & a fuchsia metallic Dew Drop. In addition to these, I used Tear Drops in coordinating colors to add a bling effect to the flowered masks, while using the Diamond Drops on one mask without a flower.



To begin, I gessoed the entire frame, followed by a rich purple gouache paint. I used a matte gel medium to adhere all cardstock in vertical rows to the front of the frame.

I then randomly patterned the Diamond Dew Drops to the solid RN cardstock, as well as the patterned diamond cardstock from my stash, using the Gold Mini Drops as a filler of sorts.

Once all elements had been made & prepped with glue, I put everything into place.

And voila! A frame that would make a great gift for anyone who loves a masquerade.


This was a very easy project, with so much personality. 
If you have not yet viewed the variety of the Dew Drops, Tear Drops & Diamond Dew Drops at The Robin's Nest online store, check them out. They are absolutely the perfect embellishment to make any project "pop" with beautiful color.

*Just a reminder, the beautiful distressed purple paper on the front of the frame & the matte inside the frame, are the only Robin's Nest cardstock, ALL the embellishments (excluding the flowers & ribbon) are also from The Robin's Nest.
