arrows and chevron

I played a bit in my art journal with these 2 new handcarved stamps:



Oddly enough the 4 arows took me longer to make then the chevron one. That one was surprisingly quick and easy. Or maybe I'm geting the hang of it??

I wanted to use them immediately so I grabbed my art journal (that has been gathering dust on the shelves), but now and then I glue some scrap pieces in there or add left over paint or clean of my stencils in there. 
I opened this page with some pieces of gelli prints on


and started with creating blocks of color the same size as the chevron stamp with oil pastels, added the arrow stamp with black acrylic paint.
And the chevron stamp with stazon black ink randomly in a few blocks


This page has progressed but still is far from finished.
