November Coloring Challenge
It is time for another coloring competition! We had some great entries for our October challenge and some of the best scarecrow entries from last month are showcased at the end of this blog along with the announcement of the winning entry. It was great seeing all of your work and I hope you will take up the coloring challenge again this month!
Are things piling up?
November can be a hectic part of the calendar, the year is building to a head and you may start to be preparing for the holiday season, frantically making plans for Thanksgiving dinner, arranging your tax returns or have an end of year push on at work. Things can feel like they are piling up – but fear not! Things aren’t piling up anywhere near as much as they are for the feline stars of this month’s free coloring page, created especially for us by Steve from Jeggle Illustration.
Have these cheeky cartoon animals send a message!
Take a well earned rest from your planning, prepping, calculating and cramming to color these cats happy and the winner will receive a free month of membership to thecoloringbook.club!
Like last month’s design, there is space here for you interpret the scene and have these cheeky cartoon animals send a message.

I chose a cool color palette for my tangle of cats, using a subtle range of blues using Copic markers with a contrasting burnt orange and neutral gray.
If you are feline lucky, you should definitely enter the competition, you never know, you may just come out as the top cat! 😉
The illustration for last month’s competition was also provided by Steve and he has taken a look through all of the entries and picked some of his favorites along with the winner, announced at the end.
There was a great cross-hatching effect on Deolinda Jorges’ Scarecrow along with the Halloween themed “Pumpkin Spice and Everything Spooky!” signpost.
The sunset border with harvest colors from Manon Dube’s entry really added a great compliment to the bright coloring of her scarecrow.
And we had a great crossover of papercraft and coloring from Tracy Wilson Weidmeier with lovely coloring and a fantastic texture added to paper itself.
And the winner is…!
But the image that we thought really captured the feel of fall, with some lovely warm colors, great use of color on the leaves and super shading on the Scarecrow face was Nancy Atkinson’s “Harvest Time!” entry. Well done Nancy! You are the winner of the first competition!
