Pinterest Inspired Art

This pin has been on my project ideas board for a while.  I had bought some canvases some time ago but ended up returning them.  Not knowing when I would ever buy more canvases, I decided to create this project with some foam board I had in the closet.  


I started by taping off my lines with painter's tape.  The tape I had was 1 inch but I cut the strips in half to make my lines thinner.


Using blue and red craft paint, I randomly painted sections of my board.  After removing the tape, here's what it looked like.  I was surprised how easy the tape came off the foam board being that it's paper.  It was Elmer's board so maybe it made a difference but I've tried with dollar store boards before and the paper ripped.
 
 
I originally made these to go above the sofa in the living room, but changed my mind.  They were a little too bright for the space.  One of them ended up in the back hall coming in from the garage.
 

The hall was empty before and this adds some pow when you walk in.




Not sure where the other board will end up but for now I like this one here.
