National Coloring Book Day and a FREEBIE!

Hello Friends! Happy National Coloring Book Day! I hope that you all take a little time out to color in your coloring books today. And for those of you still straddling the fence or if you haven't yet made up your mind which coloring book you'd like to purchase, here is something very special just for you!

Johanna Basford, illustrator of a very popular collection of coloring books, think...

Secret Garden

Enchanted Forest

Lost Ocean

has teamed up with Method Uk, the cleaning product company and they are hosting a coloring competition. Now wait...just hold on...you don't have to enter the competition if you don't want to. But, if you visit the Method Uk. website, you can download three gorgeous pictures to color. The beauty here, is that you can print the pictures on Copic friendly card stock or even watercolor paper. This gives you the opportunity to explore using other coloring media on these beautiful illustrations. And, should you decide to join in the coloring competition, you could win a bundle of Method products along with a signed copy of Johanna Basford's newest coloring book, Magical Jungle. To download your FREE coloring pages, click HERE.

For those of you who've not seen inside any of these wonderful books, I've included a video here, hosted by Johanna Basford, giving you an up close, page by page flip thru of Magical Jungle. The video is rather lengthy, but Ms. Basford's accent is so delightful, I doubt you'll mind listening in for the full 30 minutes. :)  Click the arrow to begin.

Whatever you choose to color in today, have fun and happy coloring! Thanks for stopping by!

I read about that competition, Barb and downloaded one page, but haven't done anything with it yet. Wish I could have colored on Tuesday. But alas, it didn't happen. How fun that there is now a National Coloring Day! So fun. Thanks for the link. I love to listen to Johanna's accent. Big hugs to you!! :)
