I would like to paint my wall so it looks like a bamboo forest, but I'm left-brained and would like some help.

So I got all jazzed up by this coolhunter article
. I already have a wall mural of a sunset and I wanted to balance my apt with a soothing light green bamboo forest in the living room. The wall is 14' x 8' so I have a lot of room to work with.
I was thinking about getting a stencil and projecting it on the wall, outlining and painting it in, but that seems like a lot of work partly because I can't find enough bamboo stencil patterns that are different but in the same style.
Now I'm thinking of getting a photo (or two), grayscaling it and turning it into a stencil that I can project onto the wall.
Is there a better way of doing this? I'm fairly lazy, but once I get a good idea I seize on it like a dog with a rope toy. Please help me come up with a good idea on how to make this happen and I promise that I'll post an article on instructables (or another one of those "make it" sites).
