I decided to go south of the border to play (Mexican ) "Bingo" for SPA this week. The Loteria is in fact Bingo played with a well mixed deck of cards (instead of numbered balls on a raffle drum) that have illustrations of everyday characters, cultural legends and natural elements. The caller has a complete deck of 54 different illustrated cards, and the bingo cards for players have between 9 and 12 of these colorful motives to fill in. Instead of yelling "Bingo", "Loteria" claims the prize! This collage was made from a journal page that I made of loteria elements - cards netting, silver ornaments and artistic papers.
