I took this color image from The Wall Street Journal. It is a charactiture of the Chair of the Federal Reserve, my husband tells me.
This first ATC was made by doing a quick acrylic gel medium transfer onto a background which I had made with acrylic paint.
When I peeled the newspaper off of the print I was left with a distressed looking piece of paper which I didn't want to go to waste.
Taking a piece from The Wall Street Journal I made a background. I then collaged the left over image of the Chair of the Fed onto the top.
I think both ATCs are cool and I especially liked that the main image was from a newspaper which was going to be recycled/thrown away and then also that once the image was used by me I used it a second time for yet another ATC.
This is the QUICK acrylic gel medium transfer method which takes less then 30 seconds to do.
