Last fall when Halloween placemats went on clearance I grabbed a couple, because you never know when you might need a placemat for something.  Anyway, I painted the whole thing in flat white acrylic paint, then took a pencil and a ruler and made a bunch of abstract shapes in the border.  After I finished drawing the shapes, I used several different colors to fill them in, and after several coats after everything was dry, I used several sharpies to make the bold black borders.  To finish it off I used about 5 coats of clear acrylic paint (the cheapy kind) and voila!
