Day 124 ~ Wallpaper-a-day "Nature's Lace"

This lacey design is part of a Venus fan (Gorgonia flabellum) found in the Caribbean Sea.  It is amazing what a shift of 45 degrees does to the look of the pattern. The max. repeat size is 49.5". You can choose any color or texture for the background.

Detail (NA0859-B)



(NA0859-B) This was photographed against the Caribbean waters, note that any texture or pattern in the background becomes a competing motif with the lace, which could enhance or compete.

Here I floated the pattern over a glaze background.
