The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – September 2, 2019

Hi there! A day late and quite possibly a dollar short, but your Escapist Coloring Club prompt is finally here. If you’d like 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 September to link back here.

I missed the August mid-month reminder. So here are all the participants from last month with links to their posts. Be sure to check them out!

Margret at Margret’s Life Journey

Barbara at Teleportingweena with a blast from the past

Anita at anitashope

Thank you all so much!

Now, on with the prompt.

Here’s the before.


And here are bits of the after. (Click for a closer look.) Apart from the mouse and the girl, I did this entirely in marker.

And here’s the entire thing. I came so close to getting it finished–I was even going to colour the background with a sunset–but the last half of the month with Alex home from camp made it impossible to work on it.

I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful projects throughout 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!
