Repurposed Anthropologie Bag Art

My husband and I just moved into our new apartment and I've been enjoying incorporating art and design into our new space.  I don’t always have the money to buy the art I want, so sometimes I have to be creative.  A couple weeks ago I received a gift in an Anthropologie shopping bag.  The bag was beautiful and looked like a fabulously textured abstract painting, I wasn’t about to throw it away.  I was going to reuse it as a gift bag, but then I had the idea of cutting it down, and framing it.  For a while Anthropologie has been printing beautiful abstract painting designs on their shopping bags, I’ve collected a couple and here’s what I came up with.

I only had Anthropologie’s smaller sized bags, so I used my paper cutter to cut the bags down to fit an 8x10 inch frame.
