When Alwen from Belle Brocante invites you for an art play date…you drop everything and shout YES!!!! and then you hyperventilate from sheer glee.
She is my collage guru and I have learned so many great tricks and techniques from her over the years…..And, she also is a lovely, generous, fun person….. And, her creativity is awe inspiring.
I packed up some supplies and headed down island to Victoria to Alwen’s house.
Her house is like Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe. It takes a while to drink it all in.
I drooled over her new acquisitions from her latest Brocante treasure hunting trip to France. She will be selling many of her fabulous finds on her etsy shop.: Oscar Naylor
We had a great time catching up and creating together. I started work on a couple of new assemblage boxes while Alwen worked on painting some antique Natural History Illustrations with water colours.
Thank you Alwen for a great day!
