All this happiness right here | Airport Background | Petra de Vroege

Hi sweet Cut to You fans!

So good to have you back on the blog. Can you believe it? Almost 2022… this year has flown. So, how fitting to use this amazing Airport Background file!

At first I was in doubt wether to back all the planes, or just a few, or not at all… but then it hit me. I wanted to create a background that was popping but not too busy…

the whole process is always different with me… usually I create a background and then pick a matching photo (I always have a bunch of photo’s printed and ready to use), but now I picked my photo first and knew I wanted to create a background that matched that sky in the photo.

I decided to color the planes (and wings) partially with Distress Oxide and distressed the edges. Then I stitched through the planes and folded them a bit to give some extra dimension.

After glueing the background itself, I puzzled all the planes and wings in place. I really love how it turned out, I like how the color pops and how it matches the photo.

Hope you all have a fantastic new years eve, and hopefully all a better and healthy 2022!

xoxo
