That Look of Otherness.. An Art Journal Page by Jenn Engle

Hi Friends! I have an art journal page to share with you today using some of the fab Ethos stamps by Tina Walker as the stars of the page. I just love the hand carved feel of the Ethos Stamps.


There is a lot going on in the page, lots of layers and steps. So, be sure to check out the video at the bottom of this post to see exactly how I made it!

I started out with the Dina Wakley Acrylics in a watery wash all over the background. Then I did some stenciling on top of that, hoping it would bring everything together.

Then, I stamped my fave (don't I say that about every stamp?!) the Scribble Circle, trying to make a visual triangle on my page. I added some scribble sticks and stabilo to make the circles stand out more.

Next, I looked thru my stash of painted Library Pockets to see if one would match. I added some ripped masking tape on the front of the pocket for a place for my Ethos House to sit. I also grung-ied the tape up with my stabilo marks-all.

I added some scribbles with a mechanical pencil, and stamped That Look of Otherness all over. I mean ALL over, haha.

To finish it off, I just dropped some Acrylic Ink in Titanium White around on my page and that's it! I know it looks like a lot going on but it really didn't take long to make.

I admit, it's not my usual style but I am loving it. Sometimes it's fun to step outside of your arty comfort zone and try something new, right?!
