While watching the series Damages
(Emmy winner Glenn Close is riveting as lawyer extraordinaire Patty Hewes, whose intellect is as boundless as her morals are skimpy. With her devoted colleague, Tom Shayes (Tate Donovan), and conflicted protégé, Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne), Patty rules the New York legal scene. Patty needs all her skills to best crooked businessman Art Frobisher (Ted Danson) and the corrupt Tobin family: Lou (Len Cariou), Joe (Campbell Scott) and Marilyn (Lily Tomlin).
 (although not the best photo example - but, that's what you get with a screen shot)

I noticed a really cool art piece on the dining room wall. (of course the rest of Patty's Pad is pretty awesome, too). The art piece was a black and white photograph - blown up (way up). Then cut to wrap around canvas frames. The image continued on all sides of the frame. This piece has 16 frames.

If you break it down - it wouldn't be hard to make.
Using Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements or another graphic program of your choice).
Find a great photo - convert to black and white (if it's color)
Crop a section (or use the entire photo) to the size of the finished wall size
Using the size of your frames (plus extra to wrap on all 4 sides) Crop each piece separately
Print the section -- continue until the entire piece is printed.
Adhere to the canvas
and hang it
If I had any wall space
(they're already filled with windows, doors, closets, fireplaces, etc. etc. etc.)
I'd be printing as you read ---
