It had been an exciting May! I can’t believe this month passed by so fast! I was super ecstatic to get all the beautiful entries! I love Buenos Aires, and all the entries brought me right back to it. Congratulations to Cris Lopez, who’s the winner of our May contest! Maureen and I decided on this piece because we love how the colors she used brought out the passionate atmosphere. I would also like to give an honorable mention to our youngest contestant, Yaalinii Pandian, who’s 8 years old. I love how she drew a little girl standing at the window. That was really cute, and was so creative! Make sure you check them out! I would like to thank Maureen for taking part in the judging process. Make sure you check out her Adult Coloring 101 to get more coloring tips, book reviews and occasional giveaways!
So what’s more exciting than the May Coloring Contest? Well, of course it is our
June 2017 Coloring Contest
The coloring piece of the month is the Windmills of Zaanes Schans, in Amsterdam. Just to give you a little background, in 2011, the initial intention of the trip was to attend my Masters graduation ceremony at the Sheffield Hallam University in UK. I completed the Masters in Radiotherapy and Oncology, so my parents and I traveled all the way there to make a trip out of it. Here is a blurry selfie of me wearing the hat while I was waiting to be called to the stage to get my Masters diploma.
When I finally got onto the stage to get my diploma, the professor asked me where I was from. I said Canada, and then he asked me, “What are you doing here?” To which I reply, “To see you, of course!” Hahaha, well, why else would I go all the way to UK from Canada, right? 😉
Anyway, to get back to the colouring pieces of the month. After the graduation ceremony, we made our way to Belgium and Amsterdam. Both of these places look like they came from a fairy tale. One of the days we took a side trip to Zaanes Schans. Let me tell you, when I saw the Windmills, I felt like they carried all of my worries away. It felt so peaceful there. If I can, I will keep looking at the windmills for a long time. I love it there. Since the weather is getting a bit warmer, I would like to take this opportunity to bring this warm peaceful feeling to you!
I’m super excited about the prizes, there are three items in this month’s prize pack.
The first item is, of course, the Wander in Colour: colouring trip planner and journal. Just so you know, the May and June colouring contest illustrations are from my Wander in Colour trip planner. This trip planner will help you stay organized while you research and record your trip. It also offers 13 illustrations for you to color. There are so far three editions in the series. Definitely check them out if you’re interested to learn more!
The second item is the Travel Between The Lines Adult Coloring Book by Geoff and Katie of Wandertooth. When I was browsing through Amazon to look for items for my prize pack, I came across their coloring books, and I instantly fell in love with them! That’s because they also did illustrations of the places they’d been to. PLUS, they’re fellow Canadians! How cool is that? Make sure you check out their blog and twitter account to get the latest travel news!
The third item is a set of 48 count Lolliz Gel Pen! I love these gel pens as they are very vibrant and smooth. They come in beautiful colors and I am so excited to share them with the winner!

**I’m very sorry everyone! I really want this to be a global contest. That was my initial intention. But this past contest was my first time hosting such an event and working with Amazon. I found out I was having a very difficult time getting Amazon to send items outside of US and Canada. They were asking me to give out very personal information of the receiver. I want to reassure you that I will never give out any of your information, or misuse any of your information. But when Amazon wants you to provide someone’s social number to make sure it is the correct person, I was somewhat taken aback. Also, I really don’t want to disappoint anyone. So starting this month, only participants from the US and Canada will be considered for a chance to win. However, I still encourage you to sign up even if you don’t live in US or Canada, because I’ll still share with you a digital copy of my coloring page, AND all of the future goodies from Wander Piggy. If you do end up coloring my page, I would LOVE to see your finished work! So if you can, I still encourage you to send me a copy of your final product!
Okay, that is all I have to say for now. Happy Coloring and Good luck to those who are entering the contest!!!!
