Catalogue Copy Cat Challenge –

This past weekend I worked on a project as part of the magazine copy-cat challenge over at Debbie Doo’s. I needed some wall art and I found this cool print in the Crate and Barrel catalogue.  This was my inspiration.

Now, I realize that the piece in the catalog is made from handcrafted paper made from boiled bark, but the $899 price was a bit more than I wanted to pay for my wall art, plus I wanted a smaller version.

I already had a frame that I could use to recreate the art on a smaller level.

So I headed to my local craft store and picked up some scrapbook paper and burlap.

I cut the scrapbook paper in smaller increments to duplicate the effect.

Then I added a piece of burlap and put it under the glass in the frame.

  1. LOVE, what a great way to get the same feel with out the crazy price. I never would have thought about scrapbook paper, very clever!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today :)

  2. It looks great! What a smart idea. I would never think to do that. I like the way you found inspiration in their catalogue and then just made your own.

  3. I think you did a great job! Looks wonderful…and the smaller size is what I would prefer too.
