Reader Teresita submitted this layout for the January NEW Challenge. This is what she said:
I am an Italian scrapper. My name is Teresita, I am 33 years old, I have lived abroad for some years and then I came back to the north of Italy in late 2009.
I am attaching, as requested, my interpretationof the challenge Its title is "Trying Lomo in Madrid". The picture has in fact been shot last June in Madrid where I went on a weekend break with some friends. I have used my brand new Lomo camera! NEW in this case is related to the fact that the Lomo camera was NEW!
As material I have used Elsie paper, a real city map that I painted with white gesso to have it "older", than some gesso spots to make the red paper a bit less strong , then some undergroung map bits and a clothes tag. Some embellishments, a button, red dots, and a felt heart on felt circles. The red is recurrent as in the picture you can see a red car and I wanted to stress it! Then red is also the color of Spain.
To conclude, I used some paper tape and a piece of photo film on the top left.
Thanks a lot for the possibility and
warm regards from Italy!!
