You could use the gfig plugin to make circles, ellipses or ovals that
can be resized. Or paths, but they're hard to work with in gimp compared
to inkscape.

control-L brings up the Layers dock (or windows->dockable

Shift-click on the eye to make that layer the only one shown; repeat to
show all layers.
