Scribble Picnic Prompt – Cross in a Square
This week on #ScribblePicnic we were given a mystery prompt. Here are the instructions: For your “Fill in the Blank” challenge next week, the shape to use is shown above in the windows. Can you see it? Please be sure to employ at least one square with an “X” in it! The possibilities are endless — anything from wallpaper to treasure maps! I’m calling it “cross in a square”.
Here is Michael’s picture:
So as I sat in front of my fireplace (it is not on), and I saw the grate had that pattern and thought of drawing it. But boring. No.
All of a sudden I pictured a chain link fence in a zoo. And that’s where I got my idea for this week.
My grandchildren love the zoo. They are fascinated by the animals. They love going to a farm as well. Zoos and farms allow us to be up close and personal with God’s creatures. I know there will be people who feel that it’s cruel to have the animals caged in. I understand but if they are well looked after we can really learn a lot – both in drawing and understanding the variety and beauty of creation.
Here is my rendition of this week’s prompt of a “cross in a square”.

Clever take on the theme, Janis!
Don’t you love breaking down objects to find patterns in them like you did with the fence. I think it’s a wonderful interpretation of the theme. Love those birds too!
Ooh, that’s a SUPER clever take, Janis! I love it. Very smart and I like the angle of the emu too. Well done! I think this one takes the biscuit for most original interpretation of the x in box shape! Thank you.
LOL cute and clever. I love this one …
I sort of thought it was one bird at first glance. viewing the smaller version on your twitter gadget your sidebar changed that thought. good idea and good take on the x theme.
have a lovely day.
Good job on the chain link. And that ostrich peeking out at us is so cute!
Very creative. A fun piece too.
I like your idea here Janis! Great job you did.
