Hello All, how are you?
I need to apologise in advance..this is rather a long post and I do have loads of photo's..so I will try my best to cut the waffle!!...With not being well I have pulled out my Anne of Green Gables books...which I have read over and over again, and watched the Megan Fellows and Johnathan Cromby version over and over again...I know it word for word!!.....anyway reading the books again have inspired me to make this project:
This page is inspired from when Matthew first meet Anne and takes her home to Green Gables.....the quote says:
"I can imagine I have a beautiful rose - leaf complexion and lovely starry violet eyes, but I cannot imagine my red hair away"
Its the first time I have ever put freckles onto a GG so I was not sure if it would work..but we cant have our Anne without freckles!!!
This page is inspired from the most amazing scene where Anne Looses her temper and breaks a slate over the lovely Gilbert's head, so so begins her passionate hatred of Gilbert Blythe.
the quote reads:
"Carrots! Carrots!" "You mean hateful boy!......how dare you!" THWAK!
I have made her checks really red in this one as she was furious!!!!
This page is based on the scene where Anne tries to change her hair to a "beautiful raven black" by dying it however it turns green instead
The Quote reads:
"yes its green....I thought nothing could be as bad as red hair, but now I know its ten times worse to have green hair, Oh Marilla, you little know how utterly wretched I am."
and finally..this is just a representation of the friendship between Anne Shirley and Diana Barry.
