Mixed Media Artist: Birgit Koopsen
Hi readers! Happy Friday to you! If you are drooling… then you aren’t too different from me! The fearless use of bold color and design by Birgit Koopsen isn’t too hard to become mesmerized by, and I find myself in awe of all of the elements of layering texture and patterns. I asked Birgit to pick a few of her favorites for us to share on the blog today, and wow, do these pack a punch!
Take a moment to enjoy these fabulous pieces, and be sure to pop by Birgit’s blog for even more inspiration!
Below we’ve shared a few of Birgit’s must have items when she sits down to create! Enjoy this POP of color for Friday!
