Since my first hoorah with foam board went a little downhill, I decided to try it again and see if I could make it work.
Presenting .... my version of DIY wanna-be abstract art.
I studied this tutorial on DIY abstract art and followed it very loosely.
Here are my two foam boards from Hobby Lobby at $5.50 each (used a 40% off coupon for one).
I did buy extra yellow acrylic paint for $3, but didn't use it, so I'm taking it back. Instead I used this eclectic group of paints I already had: acrylic craft paints, Krylon Short Cuts (small bottles of Krylon paint), and, yes, even my kids' Crayola finger paint. All of it worked fine, couldn't really tell a difference among them. But then again, I am no artist. As you will see...

They are kind of a hot mess, and yet I liked them enough to hang them.
