Scribble Picnic - BLANKET

We're supposed to bring a BLANKET to the picnic this week.  My first thought was a baby blanket so I sketched my favorite baby and his blanket using part of a photo his mother had shared with me. 

I've been doing the Inktober challenge also so I used a Micron to pick up those sketched lines and then some Papermate Flair pens I scored in a great sale this weekend just to color the blanket. (The set of 24 at AC Moore regularly $29.99 was on special for $10 and I had a 25% off coupon on my total purchase including sale items, so I was a really good deal.)

There's nothing more peaceful, in my book, than watching a baby sleep.

I'll be venturing over to the picnic to check out all the other BLANKETs soon.  You can too by clicking here.  Next week is a fill in the blank challenge so think about joining in the fun.


  1. Gosh Lorraine, this is just the cutest picture ever. I love the color of the blankets....So sweet.

  2. Aww this is adorable, and the blanket is beautifully coloured in. Will have to keep an eye out for those pens
    Although I am sure I won't match that deal!

  3. wow, you did get a good deal on the pens.
    This turned out lovely. Such pretty colors for a blanket.

  4. Lorraine,
    This is beautiful. And I agree. We had a little one fall asleep in his mother's arms last night at a meeting. Just wonderful.

  5. Very sweet, love those colors you used in the blanket.

  6. Ohhh! I didn't know you were doing inktober as well. How fun! I must go back and catch up on your previous ones. This is so precious, Lorraine. Adore it very much. :)

  7. Awwww....too cute! I love the colours you used for the blanket. I agree, watching babies sleep is like a meditation in itself.

  8. O yes, the infamous "blanky" and the thumb in the mouth. This is a scene that has played out in millions of homes. Right on, Lorraine.

  9. I was a thumb sucker too, haha! My daughter Kim was also and had a favorite blankie until kindergarten - love this and the colors the blanket are fabulous Lorraine.
    Yep, awaiting the theme for next week - I wonder what dear Michael has in mind for us!

  10. Lorraine, I just saw that you signed up right under the wire last week and almost missed it but thankfully had to update the picnic theme (and extend deadline accordingly)!

    This is lovely and I quite agree about watching a baby sleep. So sweet. A little piece of heaven for sure.

    That blanket, btw, looks like it;s coming off the page. Nice job! Fun to have you on Intober too. I mentioned that some of us were doing that on the new theme write up so you will want to see that anyway. Thank you. See you NEXT week! It wou;d not be fair to give you all only two days to complete this.

  11. Aw, how perfectly sweet!
    It's interesting how several of the picnickers only colored in the blanket part of our drawings this week.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
