Wall paper

I wanted to create something unique for the walls in the hallway of our apartment. I've had a lot of decoupage projects and from that I got and idea to use the same kind of technique for a wall. I found old encyclopedia in the recycling centre and decided to use pages from those for the wallpaper. I chose the pages carefully, I wanted to have different kinds of pages, some with texts and some with a lot of pictures and maps.

I used normal wallpaper paste for the pages and the same technique to use the paste as if I was installing normal wall paper. Of course it's easier to use such small pieces as book pages, but it takes a lot longer to cover the whole wall with them. The end result is totally worth the effort though!
