The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – May 1, 2020

It’s late on the 1st of May–it might even be the 2nd of May by the time I publish this–but I’m here with your Escapist Coloring Club prompt anyway. 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 May to link back here.

I failed at completing a lot of things last month, and colouring and getting the mid-month reminder out were two of them. If you’ve been reading my daily posts, that won’t come as a surprise.  So here is the before picture of my April colouring page, which would normally be posted on or around the 15th:

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


And here’s the whole thing:

I was going to leave the green bits ’til last, but I didn’t even get all the flowers finished. Maybe I’ll get a chance to come back to this one.

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in in April! Here are all the projects from last month, in case you missed any:

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! 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!
