Easy Intersecting Circles, Take Two and Three

Last week I posted a design I called Easy Intersecting Circles. This week I would like to show you what happens when you take that basic design and tweak it a little bit.

Take Two
My first variation eliminates the small triangles in the design. In step 2 and 3 of the directions, set your compass at 3.5cm rather than 4cm. If you are using a foam ball with a 8cm diameter, the small triangles in the design will disappear leaving you with an ornament like this.

Take Three
My second variation looks all together different from the original and the 2nd variation. I was really surprised how it turned out. In step 2 and 3 of the directions, set your compass at 5cm and voila, this is what you get…

So have fun playing with your compass settings. You never know how adding or subtracting a centimeter could change your design.
