Design Focus Friday - Radial Balance

 Another type of balance is radial balance. Radial balance is based on a circular shape with the elements radiating out from the center of the shape. Kaleidoscopes are perfect examples of radial balance.
 Many things in nature have radial balance such as a variety of flowers or even tree stumps. How often do you use radial balance in a piece you are creating?
I didn't find too many examples in my work. I did a series on tree stumps which I then added to a piece but the overall piece didn't have radial balance. Have you done anything with radial balance? Leave a note and leave a link to show us how you use radial balance.
