For quite some time, I've had an artsy floral stash print in mind:
But I wanted a little something extra, so I decided to fashion a few jet planes from these fiery oranges:
I'm realizing now that "fiery" is perhaps the *worst* adjective to describe absolutely anything associated with an aircraft, but they are!
I have to say, when I uncovered Amy of badskirt's impromptu airplane blocks what feels like ages ago, it was love at first sight. C'mon, what's not to love about these whimsical little air carriers? Tall and skinny? Check. Short and stout? Why yes! A little something for everyone ;)
I also happen to be a sucker for symbolism, and let's just say this airborne motif couldn't be more fitting for its recipient ;)
The only thing left to decide? Their orientation. They could fly wing-to-wing (soaring towards an open sky, with the purple print trailing the tail end):
Or nose-to-tail, flying single file along the length of the floral fabric:
When I originally envisioned this backing, I pictured single-file planes. But ever since laying them out side by side, I'm loving the idea of the floral "smoke" billowing behind this little fleet ;) Hmph. Thoughts?!
Linking up with Lee ;)
