The Inca pattern in our coloring challenge for January inspired some amazing entries on Facebook and Instagram. We had pencil, pen and even digital coloring pages submitted for our coloring competition and we round up our favorite finished coloring pages, along with announcing the winner, at the end of this article.
Our Free February Coloring Page
First, lets reveal the free coloring page for the February Coloring Challenge! Break out your favorite colors and get to work on coloring this golden/neon/psychedelic/monochrome (you choose!) Eagle coloring page.
There is a strong border framing this proud bird. Will you use a subtle color scheme in this frame to lift the eagle from the coloring page? Or maybe you will combine some of the colors you choose to decorate the bird to maintain consistency and theme in the coloring of the border? However you choose to attack this bird of prey, we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

January Challenge – Our Picks of the Bunch!
We started off 2017 with a coloring bang in our January coloring challenge, a huge thank you to everyone who sharpened their pencils or pulled out a pen to participate! We had some fantastic examples of Inca coloring pages and here we round up a few of our favorites.
Kobie Visser shared a great piece of neon coloring work on Facebook. The finished page is like a piece of 1960s psychedelia with a variety of eye popping colors used to bring this Inca pattern to life.
The pink and green patterns really lift from the page and the bold colors really seem to make those masks stare right into your soul!
Bright and Cheery
Janelle Sailer shared her mother, Janice Wiley’s handy work with us on Facebook.
Janice has used wonderful colors in the border pieces of this Inca pattern, some of which are repeated in the masks themselves, to produce a nicely thought out color scheme and a very satisfying finish to the page. We really love the extra dark edge of pink on those toothy circles. Nice work Janice (and thank you for sharing this Janelle!)
We had our very first digital coloring entry this month! Jody Ann Savage has scanned her page into a computer and then colored the design using one of the many clever coloring apps out there.
For those who want to practice different coloring effects (like the fantastic gradients in this page), or for those who may not have the dexterity in their hands that they once did, coloring applications can allow you a mess free way of enjoying coloring. You also have the bonus that if you make a mistake you can simply undo your change! We love the page Jody has shared and look forward to seeing more digital entries!
Considered and Cool!
The coloring page shared by Sharon Thacker shows some nicely thought out coloring. The choice of colors work really well together and the way they have been applied to the page maintain the symmetry and strong design of the page.
The row of masks is particularly effective with those black eyebrows and lips drawing your eyes to those faces.
Finally, our favorite page was shared with us over on Instagram. GramsLady sent in two entries, but the one that really caught our eye was this finished coloring page which uses beautiful reds and oranges against the complimentary turquoise to produce a beautiful page.
The colors work really well in this page and like Sharon’s page they have been applied in a way that keeps the symmetry of the design. Great work GramsLady!
