I am drawn to basic shapes. Perhaps it’s because I have a freshly graduated first grader, but I love squares, rectangles, and especially circles. Circles on a layout give the project motion. They can be found in products such as buttons, brads, and tags. They can be found in stamped images, as a background on a pattern paper. You can even create them digitally or through a die cut machine or a punch.
This week I’d like to challenge you to add a circle to your project. Now that’s not hard at all is it?!
Here is my project using a digital template from Vinnie Pearce:
