February Challenge – Our Favorites Revealed!
There was a flurry of entries for our February Coloring Challenge. Thank you to everyone that entered, we love seeing your finished coloring pages and the variety of styles that everyone comes up with! Let’s take a look at the entries that really put a smile on our faces this month.
Less is More!
Barbara Miller Gill showed how limited coloring on the bird, still produces a striking effect when paired with a bright and well colored border.
The use of black and white on the bird is contrasted with a subtle blue border that helps highlight the bird. Nice style Barb!
Block Rockin’ Backgrounds!
This coloring page from Janelle Sailer has some great elements to it. The bird itself is wonderfully colored with monochromatic greys and brown feathers creating a realistic Eagle.
The neutral colors of the bird are set off well by that blocked blue background and classy border.
Kimberley Amanto’s coloring page shows how outlining can be used to create an effect of depth on those feathers and also works well on the flowers producing a unique style that stands out from the crowd!
We saw some striking borders on our Eagle coloring page, but Gayle Larson’s really stood out!
Those beautifully shaded leaves and gorgeous flowers really catch the eye. Great work!
Trudy Norris’s coloring page is stunning. Not only are the colors a great blend, with
Soft blues and purples really working well on the feathers of that regal bird, but also the use of a soft pastel background really lift this page to new heights.
There are also some lovely touches like the subtle yellow on the flowers that draws attention to the centre of the design. A really wonderful page!
Pick of the Flock!
There were so many high quality entries this month that It was very difficult choosing our favorite coloring page. However, we couldn’t help but admire the skill and creativity in this entry from Denise Hubbard.
There are wonderful shadows on the edge of the border that really lift the design from the page and the addition of the blue stars and striped background produce a stunning coloring page! There is so much to like about this page, from the shading on those feathers to the beautiful choice of colors. What a triumph of coloring! Superb work Denise.
