collage obsession challenge

This week's theme for the Collage Obsession challenge is ROOM.

And here is the image provided. A surreal, stark and shabby room in shades of grey.
I really like this image the way it is. It makes a great background for all sorts of things.

So I imagined entering this room and finding a strange and colorful fairyland surrounded by these crumbling walls. Complete with it's own curious fairyland queen.

Then......after a while I thought about how I really wanted to highlight the room more. Maybe not fill it up so much (like I do in my real rooms!).

My favorite room in my house is where my work table is, and right next to that table is an old wingback chair I've had for over 20 years. It has a threadbare brown velvet slipcover I begged my mom to make for me to cover the dusty mauve upholstery. I love my chair. It's where I dream and recharge whenever I can pry my cat Luna off of it.

And so I made this second digi just for fun, with my version of a wingback chair using my favorite wings from Deviant Scrap again. I love the grunginess of this room and thought all it needed was a pop of color to make a perfect place to dream.

Thank you to Itkupilli for another great image.

Wow, both collages are stunning. But I love even more the second one, and green looks so nice with different shades.

Thank you for participating. :))

I love both of your takes on this. Your first room is so spring-y and pretty! But it seems the room we started with inspired you in the same way it inspired me. It just seemed like a serene space that didn't need too much to be a place to just "be". Very nice work!

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Interesting thought process, and I think you chose wisely. While the first is so vibrant and appealing, the second has a sense of artistic design that truly stands out in the crowd. Beautifully done on both of them!
