Happy HOT Friday!

Yup, it's Friday again... and here I am all tanned and stinking HOT sitting on my deck in Manzanillo Mexico with one week of my vacation gone and another week to look forward to... Happy, Happy Sigh... Grin
The view from Our Balcony
But Friday also means Unity Stamps' "Friends with Flair" and I am NOT going to miss that just because I am here in Mexico... so here is another Angie Blom Girl that I stamped and painted using my Luminarte Twinkling H2o's: Maggie Girl, It's Your Birthday.
I am LOVING this "re-discovered" product of mine because not only do the colors layer without blending to mud, but these paints add a wee bit of subtle shimmer that sparkles without overwhelming the image.  And I am passing on this usage tip that was passed on to me which made all the difference in how I use these paints:  before you start to paint, use a mini-mister and pump a couple of sprays of water into your paint pot and let it sit for about two minutes, the water will turn the hard packed pigment into richly colored syrup that you can water down as needed.  and when you are finished the paint pots dry back to that hard-packed pigment again.

So thanks for popping in to see what I am up to and don't forget to leave me a comment if you like what you see!!
