color explosion by jessica wilkinson

oh, sweet explosion of color! aren't these pieces by jessica wilkinson incredible? i love all the layered and textured elements. beauty! jessica created all these top pieces on polyvore, which, if you haven't visited before, is a really cool collaging website that is supposedly quite addictive. i've never tried it, but tons of people love it! and i love the messages in jessica's pieces.

jessica says:

I love the use of pattern and colour... I'm also a true magpie and drawn to all things sparkly and pretty. To me abundance is about having the freedom to express who you are, through any medium... whether that is the joy and feeling of wellbeing you get from being with a friend, to the more personal and self-led act of creating wonderful things. So I guess it's about living in the now- enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Colour makes me happy- especially a rainbow of bright colours... they really make me feel alive, so much of my work uses the full spectrum of bright colours. But I also love to work in black and white and love to work in intricate detail. I adore pattern.

check out more of jessica's polyvore pieces, and also her blog!
