Circles and More Circles with Briana

Hello and welcome!

Are you a circle lover? There is just something about that shape that gets me every time! Circles are calming. They encompass the whole. They represent the cycles of life. What do circles mean to you?

Today’s post is all about circles. Last time I shared how to create a simple mandala using Dye-Na-Flow. Today, I am sharing some more circle-inspired art. I am using Dye-Na-Flow and acrylic paint. The art is on watercolor paper, mixed media paper, and Bristol paper.

I am not showing the techniques, as I am working on my next online class where we will do lots of fun circle making.

However, I would like to help you feel inspired to play around with some circle making of your own. Why make circles, you wonder? Just read above. Circles help calm the nervous system. I don’t know about you, but I definitely could use a little help in that area right now.

Here’s a magenta and orange circle. The magenta is Dye-Na-Flow. The orange is acrylic paint.

Here’s a close up of some of the texture.

Finally, I made a circle pattern in my Canson XL Mix Media journal with the wonderful midnight blue Dye-Na-Flow.

As you can tell, I am a big fan of circles and Dye-Na-Flow! May you feel inspired to do a little of your own circle making.

Have a wonderful day!

Blessings to you,
