The hot air balloon coloring page for our Up and Away Coloring Challenge last month proved very popular. We had a lot of fantastic entries shared with us on Facebook and Instagram and as always we review some of our favourites right after we announce the coloring challenge for September!
Last month we gave you some tips on coloring flowers and leaves, so why not put some of those tips into practice on this free Flower Power coloring page!
There is strength and beauty in this picture, which reminds me a lot of a design you may expect to see as a tattoo. Why not take some inspiration from that tattoo style and imagine how you would ink this design. Whatever way you choose to color this Free Flower and Dagger Coloring Page, make sure you share your finished coloring with us at thecoloringbook.club

September Challenge – Our Best Balloons!
We entered the last quarter of 2017 with a coloring bang in our September challenge, a huge thank you to everyone who sharpened their pencils or pulled out a pen to participate! We had some fantastic entries and here we round up a few of our favorite hot air ballon coloring pages.
Ellen Jackson shared this beautiful balloon with us on facebook.
The gold and red color scheme is well balance and produces a bright and cheery hot air balloon. Great work Ellen!
Smell the Roses!
Michelle Kiser uses a combination of light and darker pinks to bring the roses in our balloon design to life.
The light blue and pink is a classic combination and works well in this design.
The next balloon is bold and beautiful and was shared with us on Instagram by @BrenianDesigns
This page uses some nice white gel pen dots to add variety to the coloring. Very nice work!
Max Kleimann uses a nice color combination and some subtle details to add some depth to the hot air balloon.
We love the darker coloring applied to the edges of the leaves and the darker shades on the blue drapes that help give a sense of dimension to those areas of the page. Nicely done Max!
We had lots of great entries across Facebook and Instagram, so thank you very much to all of those who entered the challenge!
One balloon coloring page really caught our attention this month and this is our pick of the coloring bunch for September…
The Sky is the Limit!
Daria Vitale used a beautiful blue sky background to lift her balloon from the page.
The light and breezy background contrasts well with the bold colors of the balloon to give this page a touch of class! Daria uses great skill to add subtle shading on the rose, which really brings depth to the flower. Fantastic coloring Daria!
