Hey guys,
Just thought I'd share a picture of my andy warhol tribute wall...All I did was photocopy many many many pictures of andy onto yellowish coloured paper and stuck them to the wall with wallpaper paste...easy schmeezy!  It was fairly time-consuming, as an entire wall is covered, but very simple to do.  I did this about 8 years ago and the pictures are still very well stuck!  (that's my kitty Finny reflected in the mirror)

I suppose it's a little creepy, but well, I love andy and I did this while in university and living in my dad's basement.  Thanks daddy for letting me craftify the walls! Grin
PS: Oh dear lord can anyone help me resize this scan??!  Forgive me, it's my first picture post!!

You might want to check at what resolution you scanned the pic at. It should say something like "Scan at ___ dpi" and if it's under 100 it will re-size your pic and make it smaller. So if your pic's small you can scan at anything over 100 dpi and it will scan larger.

So far the only peeling can be attributed to my cats using the wall as a scratching post...otherwise it's all good!
