May's Kit: Circles Make the World Go Round

This month is a departure from the usual product or technique lesson. You will be concentrating on using a shape as inspiration. This will give you a chance to work on your design skills. Use the circle in some way in your composition.

Your circular tin contains, polka-dot fabric and ribbon, buttons, sequins, chipboard circles, and a compass. Use any of the contents for inspiration or decoration. As you think about circles, consider finishing your piece in a circular shape, using a circle theme, using various sizes of circles in the design of the composition, using fabric, ribbon, trims, etc printed with circles to construct the composition, or using circular elements for embellishment. Have fun. Try not to go around in circles!!
