The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – July 1, 2018

Hey there, and welcome to The Escapist Coloring Club prompt!  Sorry I’m late today–I just finished colouring my calendar page fifteen minutes ago!

To join the club, all you have to do is post pictures of your own colouring, your kids’ colouring, or that of anyone you know and have permission to share. This is a month-long prompt, which means you have all of July to link back here.

Most of the pages in my Secret Garden colouring calendar have leaves. This month I had none to colour, so I had to get creative with green flowers. Here’s the before picture.

I think my favourite part of colouring this one was coming up with the contrasting colours to go into almost each flower. I think I learned a thing or two.

Here’s the whole thing.

This time, the artist messed up one flower. Hint: it’s near the bottom.

I look forward to seeing all of your amazing projects in the coming month!

Please find the “rules” below.

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 try to 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!

MoJo (and JoJo)


MoJo sits at the window. JoJo boards the bus.

JoJo: (yelling down the aisle) DUDE! Happy Canada Day!

MoJo: (stands) DUDE! What in the heck are you wearing, dude?

JoJo: (approaches MoJo) It’s a suit made of maple leaves, man! I saved ’em from last fall!

MoJo: Come and sit by me, dude!

JoJo: (sits and leaves begin to crumble) This is gonna be the best Canada Day ever!

MoJo: Dude! You’re naked!

JoJo: (looks down at himself) No way! Lucky I have a flag! (smiling, holds up small flag and waves it)

MoJo: That’s no way to fly our flag, man.

JoJo: Darn it, dude, you’re right! What am I gonna do?

MoJo: Here. (takes off t-shirt to reveal body paint in flag design) Tie this around your waist.

JoJo: But, now you’re more patriotic than I am, man.

MoJo: Wait! (turns to face him and presses his chest against JoJo’s) There! Now we’re wearin’ each other’s maple leaves!

JoJo: Cool!

MoJo: (stands) Happy Canada Day, everybody!
