i’m jealous of jessalyn aaland

Where are my scissors?!? Seriously. I need them right now! This collage work by California based artist Jessalyn Aaland has totally inspired me to get back into the studio… I must start snipping magazines, books, and stickers immediately! I had such a hard time deciding which of her hilarious / beautiful series to show… so I just picked a whole bunch. These images are from ACCUMULATIONS {1, 2, 3} DREAMHOUSE {4, 5} and DIYSAFESPACES {6, 7}. On second thought, forget the studio time – now I just want to do some major hoarding in my dream house, and then talk about it in a DIY safe space! So. much. love.
