Another option is to make a stencil and sponge-paint it on. I get the sampler from doverpublications.com e-mailed to me every week, which allows me to download copyright free images. To make the stencil, you can choose one of their designs, blow it up to whatever size you want, and trace it onto clear stencil paper (available pretty cheap at Michael's or A.C. Moore). Then cut out the design and sponge away. I used this technique to decorate the sides of a wooden bookshelf I refinished and it came out gorgeous.
