And the Winners are...

All rights reserved and all artwork copyrighted by each artist. Examples (from left to right, column by column):

What a fabulous array for our very first Scribble Picnic! Over 20 appetizing finds to feast your eyes upon. We have everything from part time doodlers, to artists to even a professional baker! Before announcing who won the fabulous giveaway, if you haven't seen everything yet, here's all the submissions. (As you'll note from the "@" symbol, there were several Instagram offerings too. In fact, some of you submitted both to the blog sign up and social media so in that case, I went with the blog name. BTW, I understand that we'll each stick with our preferred platform when visiting others and that's entirely expected, but thought it would be fun for you to see a glimpse everything here.) How fun and varied they all are. As with any art collective, it's only as successful and engaging as each of us make it. I'd say then, we're off to a great start! How about you?

For the giveaway drawing, I counted up the number of times each participant qualified for an entry and added your names as many times to a random name picker. Rather than spoil the fun, announcing who won here, you can simply congratulate the winner* yourself! :D

In case you didn't catch it, the next Scribble Picnic theme is centered around a CABIN! (All future themes and due dates will be listed on the side bar, btw.) If you're ready to start loading up your creative hamper with possibilities, maybe this Pinterest board will help add a little relish? Happy Pickings! Oh, and finally, one more thing: I'm doing a giveaway each month, continuing the picnic celebration for a while. And, I'm thinking it would be exciting to shop around for one grand bundle end of year holiday prize, open to all of you who participate at least once a month! How fun is that?! I do love butlering, after all! :)

*Winner, do be sure to contact me or private message on Instagram so I can send the picnic winnings to you right away. And, if for some reason, you choose to pass, that's fine too, it will then go to the runner-up, Christine.

  2. And you are in SECOND place, Christine so you never know! Thank you for all your help launching this thing with your % entries. You and Serena both had 5 entries so I think it certainly helped in crease the odds!

    Yes, I thikn the collage looks fabulous. Wth the advent of online social media submissions and most people sticking to their favourite platform, I thought it woudl be great to show not jsut how many differnt types of entries we had but also where from. Not sure I could do that every time as it did take quite a while to pull it together but I am still on a picnic high and excited to get this new venture off the ground. I'm feeling quite celebratory, what can I say? :) Thank you, Christine. You are the best! Definitely someone who makes the co-op special. I also appreciate all your comments on everyone's work as I'm quite sure they do too. You certainly make it a better experience for all!

    1. Our first picnic deserved a photo for keeps for us all, so voila! thank you, Linda. So love it when you join us. :) I hope you do one of your marvelous felt things again too. So unique and lovely.

  4. All your artist friends are fantastic Michael - I think you should take them on an English-style picnic to celebrate! How about an afternoon in a 'bluebell wood' - my favorite place in Springtime - with a Victoria sponge and a nice pot of tea. . . . . . . I'll take Earl Grey please sir! Silly Brits aren't we, but you could do a 'teatime' scribble, even a picnic theme. . . . . . . I so wish I was an artist and could join in.

    Happy weekend - and watch out with that sizzling wok - turn the heat down a bit! Don't forget, oven-roasted veggies are much easier, and cleaner, to prepare - I do them all the time. Just chop, slice or cube, toss with a little olive oil, salt and pepper, and put in a single layer in large shallow baking dishes - 375F for about 45 mins. with a stir now and then, you will have heavenly goodness for supper and great leftovers to add to other recipes. The ratatouille I just posted on was done that way - it is soon delicious.
    Hugs - to you both, Mary

    P.S. Do you still have that sweet doggie?

    1. You know, I have never done veggies like that? Sad, right? Sounds way easier but I love the idea of "woking" my buns off in the kitchen! :) Thanks you for the marvelous tips. So going to do that with the other veggies not yet cooked.

      And, I will so do a teatime scribble at some point and let you know. I am sure Alexandra woudl do something far more British than I, actually, funnily enough. :) Earl Grey at the ready. I do so love that brew too.

      YES! The lil Scottie still acts like a pup -- ALWAYs playing with a toy even though now he's 11 years old (77 human years!). Sweet pups, however seems to have a fat deposit that could be something worse as it seems to be growing. Scotties don't live that long. We would be so sad and Alexandra would be devastated. He's been her solid companion for all this time through many things, long before I ever met her! Thank you for asking. Very sweet of you.

  5. All those octopi certainly make a lovely, colorful collage!

    1. Totally. Funny too how many chose either purple or an octo on or near someone's head. Very interesting. This is one of the reasons I LOVE having us all explore the same theme -- the the variety of interpretation afterwards.

    1. If you're like me, you rather like that exploration period and coming up with the idea, right? It's the finishing it off that I find rather laboursome. Thank you.

  8. I am excited to put mine up tomorrow and glad to be a part of this again. Can't wait to see yours - it looks detailed as usual. Love your collage. See you tomorrow.

  9. Hi Michael ~ back from my month in Oregon with my daughter's family and little Tristan. I'm excited for this new art co-op that you are doing. I love that it's sketches, as I usually get myself to involved and I think this is something I will be able to do. I will jump in real soon! Put a new blog post up yesterday about my trip. I LOVE all the octopuses....adorable!!!
