The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – August 1, 2020

17 Comments

Hey there! It’s August 1st, and I’m here with 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 August to link back here.

I finished my colouring my calendar page, just today! About half of it, in fact. I really slacked off for most of the month. Here it is with no colour:

And here are closeups of the parts of the finished product: (Click for a closer look.)

And here’s the whole thing:

Not having time to really think about which colours to use, I just grabbed whatever. I like the overall chaos of it. Alex actually coloured the yellow flowers at the top left-hand corner, as well as half of the leaves on that plant and half of the snail before he got bored.

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in July, and for all your lovely comments on my last colouring club post! I’m so sorry I didn’t reply to them all–I’ll try harder. Here are all the projects from last month, in case you missed any:

Melanie at sparksfromacombustiblemind

Barbara at Teleportingweena

Jenna at revivedwriter

Colline at Colline’s Blog

Beth at Pilgrimage Studio

Dar at Darswords

 

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!

  10. Turned out great, Linda! I need to get busy, I haven’t colored in weeks, been too preoccupied with my studies. I never see my submissions on your site, but I post at least once every month. Hmmm, not sure what I’m doing wrong.

    • That’s odd. There’s nothing from you in my spam. Just keep checking, I guess, and if your link doesn’t show up automatically, paste it in a comment.
      Looking forward to seeing your colouring! Take a break! πŸ˜€
