The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – January 1, 2018


Welcome to the first ever Escapist Coloring Club prompt! For this prompt, I encourage you to post pictures of your own colouring, your kids’ colouring, or that of anyone you know and have permission to share. That’s all you have to do to join the club.

For my own posts, I have a new colouring calendar, which gives me a new project to work on every month. I plan to take a “before” picture to post next month, so I can show both the uncoloured version and the coloured one.

This month all I have to show you is my December 2017 calendar fully coloured.

I decided not to colour in the background, but the temptation to just cut it out and paste it to my paneled wall is great.

Here are the details:

I coloured the tree green, then wished I’d coloured it brown.

Loads of fun shading the pine cones! I used a combination of markers and coloured pencils for effect.

That’s it! All there is to it, apart from the hours of “me” time I got while working on it.

Please find the “rules” below. I look forward to seeing your amazing projects!

1. This prompt is designed for relaxation. As such, I encourage you to take your time to link your own post here, BUT, when you comment, please click the “Notify me of new comments via email” button. That way you’ll receive a notification when someone else links their project and you won’t miss anything. As with all the prompts, the more you visit others, the more your community of like-minded people grows.

2. Ping back! It’s important so that I and other people can come and read your post. To execute a pingback, just copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into the body of your post. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

3. There will be a prompt on the first of every month. I will post the prompt here on my blog at 9:30am -5 GMT. The prompt will simply be photos of my own colouring project. If you would like to host this prompt on your blog on another week during the month, either once, occasionally, or on a regular basis, please e-mail me at hilllindagmaru at gmail dot com and we’ll get you set up. All I ask is that you have an active blog and that you regularly reply to comments and visit other blogs.

4. Feel free to use the Escapist Coloring Club badge in your post.

5. Have fun!
