Journal Fodder 365 - Prompt #36

The prompt this week was personal symbols. It wanted us to look at lines, shapes, images that we use over and over again.

Anyone who has followed this blog for a while will have noticed that I like circles. They turn up in my pages either as underlying collage elements (love my large circle punch!) or stencils, solid or in outline. There is just something inherently pleasing about them - the regularity of the shape, the soft no-corners roundness.

Then you have to look at their symbolic message - eternity, no beginning or end. It speaks to my soul of completeness, which, if we're honest, is what we're all looking for.

What shapes keep turning up in your artwork?


  1. I like circles too. When I doodle I have a shape I draw all the time. It looks like a ? but with out the dot and not quite so sharp a curve at the top. I have done this for years when I am just doodling on the phone and usually turn the shape into the nose of some cartoon person, as it lends itself well to that. Hearts are another thing I love to doodle. I love what you came up with for the prompt. It looks lovely.

  2. What a wonderful journalpage, Tracy!
    And yes, I love circles too. But I also love spirals. They remind me of eternity as well and of going deeper into things.


Thanks for dropping by. I read and appreciate all your comments.
