Me Time Messages Week 3

It is already week three of Clare's 'Me Time Messages' project and this is my take on it.  For starters, I didn't have a suitable mask and so did a bit of junk journaling (posh term for recycling???) and made one from the lid of an old ice cream box:
 I think making the mask was very fitting for the word I chose this week- something I need to work on.  Rushing ahead with a craft knife and the ice cream box lid was only going to end in a mess and so I took my time for once and planned it out.  Not to say that I rush headlong into everything in life, just at times I could do with a little more patience.
 Quote: Lack of patience in small matters can create havoc in great ones'.
Quote: Patience is no simply the ability to wait but the way we behave while we're waiting.
I didn't have suitable colours in inks and so have used acrylic paints with my mask.  The stamps are from Kaisercraft- the circles stamped in silver and embossed in black, while the numbers were stamped and embossing in black.
Had fun making this yesterday- thanks Clare :-)
