October Colouring Competition

Colouring competition for Facebook

This is a blog post in a hurry! I have just launched a colouring competition on my Facebook page, the October Colouring Competition and I promised to have links to the FREE colouring pages here on my website.

Colour to Win!

Enter as often as you like, pick from either or both of the free colouring pages from my Google Drive folder (click on the image or the link below) and upload your photos directly to the October Colouring Competition photo album on the Jenny Gollan Designs Facebook page.

Colouring competition for Facebook


Click HERE to download your free colouring pages.

You will receive 2 different colouring pages in three sizes each:

  • A4
  • A3
  • Letter

The Google Drive folder also includes directions on how to enter, the competition cutoff date and when the winner will be announced. We print at home on A4 typically here in Australia but, if you have access to an A3 printer, you can opt for the larger A3 size. I’m fairly certain that the Letter size is used most commonly in the U.S. on home printers.

What Should You Use to Colour In With?

That is entirely up to you. You may use whatever you’re most comfortable with – pencils, pens, gel pens, markers, crayons or all of the above.

Enter one of the drawings or both and don’t forget to invite you’re friends to cheer you on with a Like for more chances to win.

The Prize!

The entrant with the most Likes on their photo in my Facebook photo album wins a free copy of my upcoming colouring book for adults, Mandala Designs. My colouring books are instant download and print pages full of original, digitally hand drawn colouring pages. I think you’ll like them 🙂

The Winner will be announced on the 31st of October, 2015 and contacted by a private message on Facebook.
