ZIA - ovals, squares, circles - Zentangle challenge #65

The string for this ZIA was created using three things from the kitchen - a coaster, a martini shaker, and an olive dish - I thought about calling it "wasted martini's", but will save that catchy title for another ZIA. I had barely started when Zentangle Weekly Challenge #65 from "I am the Diva" came out asking us to use the tangle "Huggy Bear". I'd never used it before. I did a traditional tile and submitted that, but though it made me try some variations of Huggy Bear, I wasn't too happy with it. So I added it into this ZIA, and I'm much happier with how it turned out. I didn't try to be too original in variations - I'm working on learning and practicing tangles, rather than stretching creativity. Sometimes when I see how creative others are, I think "why didn't I think of that?". Hopefully that will come after I get better at technique. Love to hear any comments....

I had to enlarge it to have a good look. What a wonderful selection of patterns. I really like what you've done :)

I love it and although you believe you did a straight on version of Huggy Bear, it is still different from many of the others and certainly different from mine (and I thought mine was a direct interpretation!) Isn't it grand!?!

Oh Wow - what a fun ZIA to explore - lots of eye candy here. Especially liked what you did with Pepper and Jetties.
