This is a snap from instagram and is such a fun, easy idea I had to share it straight away. This could be used to create texture for a print onto fabric or perhaps in a pale colour to create an interesting background to mount a photograph on before framing. A lovely idea which would be super quick and easy to set up and you could also do it with kids.
