SCRIBBLE PICNIC ~ FILL IN THE BLANK!

A very interesting theme this week!! Michael, the host of Scribble Picnic, is making everyone stretch their artistic minds.  Ouch...this was a stretch but what fun.  

Below is the what we started with...Fill in the Blank!  A dot and a line....go figure.  Did you notice.. the title Tinker Toys is also done with circles and lines...HaHa..this was fun!!


I stared at it for a few minutes, and a for some reason, the picture of Tinker Toys came into my mind as plain as day!!!  When our children were little, we had shoe boxes full of Tinker Toys, and they spent endless hours building things.  Yes, Tinker Toys are round circles and lines...  Can't wait to see what the other artists came up with.  Join me in looking by clicking on the Scribble Picnic Badge at the top of my sidebar.

  1. Ooh, clever interpretation, dear Wanda, and nothing I would have expected! Glad you exercised that good ol' grey matter too. :) Thank you so much! I put the sign up early as I wanted to post my piece Tuesday since I'll be out most of Wednesday with work stuff. did not expect a sing up already! And here you are, at the picnic, ready....with toys in hand. Fun!

    1. Thanks Michael. I guess "Legos" took the place of Tinker Toys, and video games seem to have taken over kids. Sad. I think you probably have to find them at a yard sale or antique shop. Haven't see them for years.

  2. Spent many a happy hour with Tinker Toys as a child, find it hard to pass them up when I see any even now.

    1. I did...once I decided on Tinker Toys, had to look them up on Google to remember exactly what they looked like.

    1. I didn't have Tinker Toys as a child, but our kids spent hours playing, and building all kinds of things. I just hated stepping on one in the night. Not as bad a Legos though...HaHa.

    1. Thanks Serena ~ I got the thought right away....but had to google them to remember just what they looked like. My kids are in their 50's so it's been a while since I saw them. HaHa

  9. this one looks like it might shape into a bicycle of sorts. I suppose you could build any shape out these tinker toys. I like the fun colors. wonderful take on the theme.

    have a lovely day.

    1. My kids did build bikes, cars, houses,, ladders, etc....it was endless. And all in primary colors. Red, blue, green and yellow, and the natural wood.

  10. Oh yes, I can see how you came to Tinker Toys ... and I do remember building things with them as a child. I don't think they are out there anymore, are they? This is clever indeed, Wanda ...

    1. You know Suzanne...I was vaulted back to a living room with the floor covered with a sheet. Kids playing on the floor with a ton of Tinker Toys. If the doorbell rang...sent the kids off to there rooms and gathered the four corners of the sheet, and stuck it in the bedroom and Walla...the living room ready for company. My life as a young mom with 4 kids. HaHa

  13. Wanda,
    Isn't it interesting what we picture in our mind? I do remember tinker toys very well. Great drawing, colour and design.

    1. They were so simple. circles of natural wood, and primary color rods. So much fun. The days before video games...good old days.

  15. I love your illustration Wanda. It brings back many memories. And I see your lettering echoes the circle and dot. How clever.

    1. Thanks Lorraine ~ I'm glad you notices the lettering..nice touch I thought. HaHa

  16. Oh, yes, my brothers and I spent many hours building with tinker toys! And they do still sell them–Target, Wal-Mart, Amazon, ... and of course eBay for vintage sets. Some of the newer sets are plastic now, but that just doesn't seem right! ;-)
    Like Lorraine, I noticed your lettering using the circles and lines to go with the wonderful painting.

    1. Oh goodness, I didn't know you culd still get them. But plastic...that really doesn't do it for me... I loved the old wooden ones.

  17. good interpretation of the image :) brings it to life. I never played with them as a kid, we just had legos

    1. Thanks..I think legos took over Tinker Toys... You could do more things with them I think.

  18. Oh, fantastic! Love your loose but faithful painting. It makes me want to be 5 again and hear those Tinker Toys clanking around in their container... begging to come out and play!

  19. To answer your question on my blog. yes the grapes are very sweet and tiny. I'm not suppose to eat fruit but I just can't resist our home grown fruit. It makes up for all the plums that we NEVER got this year. Glad you made jelly from last years.
