|Cheers & Beers Banner for 30th Birthday Party|
Please excuse my messy kitchen rack :-\ What I want to showcase today is a banner my sweet daughter-in-law requested for my son's 30th Birthday bash. She requested glittery paper, and because my son is 'over-the-hill,' black will be a major part of the color theme.
|Recollections supplies from Michael's|
I was lucky to find pre-made banners and a nice light-weight paper for the glittered letters. This greatly reduced my cost and time investment. One thing I'm finding out since taking a little sabbatical is that I'm much faster at designing and making paper crafting happen!
|Experimenting with glue and paint for crackle effect.|
I remembered that I had some Ranger crackle paint, but I knew that the little jars would not be enough for this project. So I searched You Tube for the process of using glue as a medium for crackling paint.
Success! It crackled. I was tempted to go back over the cracks with another color, but my husband said he wanted the kitchen table back, so I left it alone.....
|Completed panel w/glitter letter.|
Above is one completed banner with glittery letter! My daughter-in-law is pleased. All that is left is to complete the decoration across the top....which I will wisely leave to her :-)
