I love it when artists play with nature in their work. In particular I have a thing for that kind of art that puts nature into a different perspective and makes you look at it in another way. A selection of artists have done exactly.
Wouldn't this be great for a runner down the wedding aisle or cute indoor outdoor carpet? Take a plastic lace tablecloth and spray paint it on lengths of colored fabric or burlap. Repeat for the length of the runner.
