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!

  1. Birgit’s work is stunning. Each of her pieces makes me smile or even laugh (the one she did with the fish that have a large lower jaw with teeth! on her blog) I would love to see her working thru a piece via video or a tutorial. Her colors pop! Thanks for sharing this artist’s work~ I will be following this blog!

  2. This is how my art journal pages look ” in my mind!” It is so inspiring to see an artist who can make magic with mixed media.

  3. I am just in awe! Gorgeous colors and designs . . . It is hard to take it all in at once — I have to go back and look at the details again and again. It is so inspiring . . . I would love to take a mass media class and pick up some basic techniques.

  4. These colors are amazing and so too is the Artist. Love the different projects and the stamps and design. Thanks for sharing.
