Nes's bloggy babble

Welcome everyone to my blog. Anyone who knows me will understand that Im not remotely boffy so its understandable that my blog is a bit of a mess. I have my blog mainly to allow me to copycat my friends who use theirs for displaying their crafty-wares. Im a bit of a sporadic blogger and often forget to save images of my work to post on my blog. I often forget I even have a blog sometimes.

About Me

My name is Nes - short for Agnes. Im Scottish living in South Wales for thirteen and a half years now. I have been forced into getting a blog cos everyone else I know has one and I felt left out. I'm pretty rubbish with computer stuff so often rely on my poor boffy mates to sort me out when I need help. Im not sure how well maintained this blog thingy will be but hey-ho I'll have a go! I am a member of a couple of different forums to do with crafting and also music festivals. I like people who are hunourous and who generally just make me laugh.

Gingers Altered Book - Artists Theme






Im really into Frida Kahlo so I thought she was the obvious choice for Gingers book. What a facinating woman she was.
She's Mexican and had quite a coloured chequered life before she died in her 40's. Her art is quite weird and does not fit into one specific art genre though some people class her as a surrelist. Lots of her stuff is self portrait and shows the pain she went through pretty much all her life due to an accident as a teenager. Some of her stuff is quite naive looking and other stuff is pretty weird. These pages do not do justice to her work at all. She is well worth having a look at in my opinion.
