Barn #103 - Lottie and Elaine

Barn #103 - Lottie and Elaine

The barn series is complete.  One year ago Ingrid, my friend in Sweden, and I decided we wanted to have a journal exchange and the theme would be barns.   I finished Barn #103 - Lottie and Elaine and mailed the signature back to Ingrid. These sisters actually appeared in a previous barn piece called Sisters. Ending a series is sad in a way and also exciting.  I really enjoyed this experience.  It was challenging to continually think of new ways to include barns in our spreads.  I completed thirteen spreads for the exchange and several more than that for the series.  Both Ingrid and I did not want the exchange to stop. However, there will be other exchanges in the future I am sure.  I found out this morning Ingrid will  get the signature I sent today when her husband arrives at their lake house.  Yeah!

Another wonderful spread! I really love the background. What a great exchange project. How's that other exchange project of yours going, the one you invited me to participate in? You haven't mentioned that one yet. Have a wonderful weekend!

What a magical spread. The color, the balance and content all harmonize so beautifully! Lucky Ingrid! And, us to share. Thank you John! ♥

Well, it's a stunner to finish it off. Gorgeous colour and balance - really admire this one. It may even displace your fabulous mangos I've been enjoying on my screensaver...
