Illustration Friday - 'Clear'

IF theme this week is Clear and when I did this painting it was controversial, mainly because it was meant to be. I think the message of this one is clear. This was from a series of etchings I did in my printmedia class. There were other words I used as well (but can't remember what they were right now). Do you think the message is clear in this one or perhaps each person will get a slight variation on the theme? It's not meant to be offensive, my aim was to make reference to the way that the children of the world are often thought of (slave labour, childhood prostitution or other less obvious ways).

Photo Friday - 'Gross'

PF this week = 'gross'. This is by no means a reference to Keziah but the mess she has on her face, she's enjoying herself though so that's the main thing! She got a lot 'grosser' than this of course but this shot is very cute and funny so I couldn't resist.

I've been busy, busy, busy lately with experimenting with Polyclay and I'm about ready to start a sellin'. I've not priced anything yet but very soon I will be posting with prices on here. Most of the money raised from the polyclay beads and pendants will go towards our support with the exception of the little people beads which will send funds to SIM's HOPE for Aids projects.

Here's a few more examples of what I've been up to:

Letting the glaze dry by pinning them into a tissue box!
