This was actually my first project I did after joining Craftster back in January and I just now realized I never posted it  Cheesy

It's fairly large at about 68"x42"



I spent forever cutting the pages and marking on the wall to make sure everything was straight!  I was very happy with how it turned out. 

You can find the rasterbator so you can make your own here: http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/  Just give it an image and it gives you a pdf (if I recall correctly) that you just print and you are ready to go!

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

That looks great!

I have tried doing this and mine never turn out.  What is your secret?  When I've tried, I've wanted mine smaller.  Do they have to be big to actually look good?

Great job!

I wouldn't think they would need to be huge to look good.  You might play around with the size of the dots.  If you are doing a smaller one, you will want smaller dots - the more dots, the better detail you will get in the picture.  Also the biggest thing is to make sure that when you cut the pages the lines are completely straight so that you don't have gaps when you hang it.  Hope that helps!

OMG! I love Amelie!

I think the larger grain adds interest to the picture.

Looks fantastic. How did you get the pages on the wall so that the edges don't curl?

Lots of tape  Cheesy  I put a piece of tape behind each corner, so there were 4 pieces per page.  Very time consuming, but worth it!
