This is what I did tonight....

I found a picture on the internet and went to this website (if anyone knows what it is Huh) and the website did the work for me.  Then I just taped them up to the wall and make the edges kinda all over the place so that my mistakes while cutting etc. wouldn't show as bad and it would look like it was on purpose.  (The hubby's idea)  I then painted strips on the wall around it to make like a really big frame.  Well, hope you enjoy, I love the feedback!

YEAH! the rasterbator!  for my house last year, i did a huge still from one of my favorite movies and put it in the living room across from the front door.  when i moved into my apartment this year, our living room has sloped ceilings on two sides, so my roommate and i each took a wall and put HUGE pictures of ourselves up there.  on the website they have a HUGE archive of all the things people have done; you should submit yours!  they can be some tricky little guys to assemble, but your lines all look really clean, and i love the idea of the frame around it.  way to rasterbate!

I work at a movietheater and we used this site to make ourselves posters of Casa Blanca, Breakfast ant Tiffany's, and ... some other movie I forget.

I like the border you made for this and I think it's neat how you chose smaller circles to make it more photographic. We used a little larger ones so it looks a little more pixelly. ( http://a544.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/10/l_3122b57ef49e0f8572eefb5df12b2ff7.jpg ) consequently the movie I can't remember... (my friend being artsy off to the side..

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Thanks for all the comments.  And thanks Haley for putting up the website.  It was a lot of fun but if you try it make sure that the button to put borders on the pages is defiantly clicked.  I had clicked it but kept going back and changing stuff to make it how I wanted and somewhere along the way it got unclicked and was  a total pain in the ass to cut.  Other than that it was a big instant gratification project!

my friend did something like this with a pic of matt skiba from alk3 and a pic of flogging molly. the only difference was that she photoshopped the image to look like it was only made of dots, so up close it was just dots; but as you stepped back, you could see the whole image. we're moving out together soon, and we plan on making our entire living room covered in these giant dot-resolution finishes of our favorite bands and stuff.
