Twilight Party: The Banner

Growing up, my step-mom owned a sign shop. She would use vinyl, paint, markers, etc, to make signs, posters, lettering on trucks, and so much more. One of the things she's always done, though, are banners for big events like Graduations, Weddings, Benefits and more.

She asked if Rae would like a banner for her party, and I said YES! I knew she'd do a great job, and she really did an awesome job with it.

The banner is done 100% with MARKER! No paint, no vinyl, just marker! And, it's all free hand. Isn't she amazing??

I love the dripping blood effects she added! The gray all shows up metallic silver in person, but looks more gray here. The black background? She must have spent a LOT of time on that, because it's all colored in with marker!

I didn't tell Raegan about it until it came. I was going to try and wait until the day of the party, but I got too excited! It just looked way too cool to keep hidden away. It was a great addition to the party!

I added black sheer ribbon with silver glitter to drape across the top like crepe paper, then added lights as well around it. It looked great! The girls at the party all said they'd never seen such a cool party set up as we had.
