The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – March 1, 2020

28 Comments

March is here! And so is your Escapist Coloring Club prompt. 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 March to link back here.

I’m quite proud of the fact that not only did I get this month’s colouring project finished, I finished it early! Here is the before picture:

And here are the closeup bits: (Click for a closer look.)

I decided to think totally out of the box this month and do something I’ve never done. In the past I’ve coloured in all the greenery and left the other colours until last, but this month I decided to leave the greenery ’til last. I’m quite happy with the way it turned out. Here’s a photo of all the flowers coloured but no leaves:

And here’s the finished page:

I always thought it would be easier to decide on the colours once I had the bits in place that I was sure of ahead of time, but this way seemed more exciting somehow. So here’s a challenge for you when you start your next project: if you can, try something you’ve never tried before.

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in in February. I look forward to seeing your new 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! Itโ€™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 youโ€™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!

  16. Oh so pretty – love the dark and light colors on the flowers. Sometimes I just skip around on a page, or I try to do all one color, then go to another color. It’s fun to mix it up. ๐Ÿ™‚
