Advent Calendar Quote #20

Christmas Advent Calendar Quote 20 - L.M. Montgomery, Mistress Pat

That’s right, guys, another quote from L.M. Montgomery!

I had a lot of fun creating this particular quote image, adding old-fashioned roses from PicMonkey’s Vintage Blossoms graphics because they reminded me so much of the prim women and young old-fashioned girls in Montgomery’s books who had a fondness for that sort of thing. I also tried to get the colouring of the text to the kind of green shade to match the green and white houses that I imagine both Silver Bush and Green Gables to be.

I was really happy with the way it turned out, saved all my changes and was about to post it on the blog today when… horror of all horrors! I realised I had put the title of the book the quote was from as Pat of Silver Bush and not its sequel, Mistress Pat! So I had to go back onto PicMonkey and tried about a gazillion times to recreate the entire picture, from the right shade of colour for the background and the text to the exact way I had positioned the flowers. Next time, I’ve got to be more careful before I hit save!

This is the last weekend before Christmas. Next week, it will be Christmas…and a few days after that, the New Year’s! What will it hold for us?
