World Market Intersecting Circles DIY

You might have seen Jodi Fuch's Collective at World market or Z-Gallerie. It's a beauty, isn't it?

If you follow Lindsey, she had an awesome tutorial for how to DIY your own "Collective." Her directions were excellent so I won't try to recreate them and take credit. The only thing I would add to her directions is that you want to select a circle the fits your dimensions of your canvas perfectly. So, if you have a 16 x 16 canvas, you want a 4" circle. I chose a 15 x 30 canvas and used a circle that was just shy of 3". Make sure to chose a circle circumference that will divide evenly into both the width and length measurements (i.e., 3 goes into both 15 and 30 evenly). You can tell my circle was just a tad too small because my points don't match up. Live and learn. If I do it again, I know what not to do. See how my centers of my circles don't meet in points? But I like mine nonetheless.

Here is my almost finished canvas. I would have posted a finished one but I'm still contemplating whether I should leave it unfinished or use black in the unfinished spots. The original piece of art by Jodi Fuchs isn't finished either. What do you think I should do?
