JFJ 15 for 30 Challenge - Day 5: Circles

Squares and rectangles add a lot of structure and predictability to our work, but circles add a great contrast to the straight lines and sharp corners. Circles remind us of bubbles and balls, and may have a playful feel to them. Circles also represent wholeness and unity. “Coming full circle” is an expression of completeness and closure.

Add circles to your pages and art today. Don’t worry about making perfect circles, but if you’re uncomfortable with freehand circles, feel free to use a compass or a stencil. Draw, paint, or collage your circles onto your work. Make large circles that go off the edge of your page adding structure to the layout, and make small circles that float in the middle adding areas of focus. Overlap circles to create a nice visual texture. Feel free to start new pages or work, or add to pages in process.

Don’t forget to share! #jfj15for30
