Compelled by Circles

Today I have chosen two layouts I completed a while ago of my mum and I, using a lot of cut and punched circles, and buttons as embellishments. I love these layouts, partly because of the shapes but also the colours of the papers, they worked well with the photos I had. I created these at a fortnightly class I attend at Scrapbook Sisters. They also fit the theme this week for Created by Hand of circles. I do tend to use a lot of circles in my work, there is something strangely appealing about the shape!

what a great idea adding the buttons in the other circles - great addition of depth to them and what a unique embellishment used like that.

Beautiful layouts - I love the circles and especially the buttons. It's great how you can create an elegant look like you show here, or a really playful look using primary or neon colors. Also, the smaller circles is such a perfect idea for using up paper scraps. My friend is an artist, and she said she never throws a piece of paper away - it can always be used somehow.
