Collage Obsession Challenge #27: "Nightmare"
This digital collage is for this week's Collage Obsession challenge (http://collageobsessionchallenge.blogspot.com/2010/10/collage-obsession-challenge-27.html). I wouldn't usually use such dark subject matter, but am trying to stretch my artistic tastes and techniques through these challenges. I blended the original image of the painting with a cloudy sky image (from a personal photo) that I had altered digitally. Then I applied the fresco filter to the whole collage, which increased the fiery (bloody?) atmosphere. The red blotches at the top now look to me like eerie distorted faces watching the gory madness...ugh...
I credit my husband for his help deciding which effects worked best for this collage. Thanks, Nelson!
Again, my collage is shown first, and the original image below it.
Now back to unpacking!
