Mixed Media Monday - Make Something Round











Have you ever completed a test that requires you to choose your favourite shape? This is a "no brainer" for me. I always choose a circle. I'm not quite sure why. It is just a comforting shape to me in its inclusivity and softness. I always seem to have a stock of compact discs that I've discarded in some way. It just seems so wasteful to throw them away so every once in a while I decide to make art with them. This three CD piece is a tribute to the Fall, just around the corner and always welcome to me, and my entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge.
