posted in: Competitions, JeliRAD Life | 0

Digital Fabrics – Winter Blooms At the beginning of June 2016, Digital Fabrics announced a new fabric design competition, to be held on Instagram, my favourite social media platform! The theme was Winter Blooms. The prize was $500 worth of custom printing on cotton fabric & an opportunity to sell the winning design in their online shop. It has been 2 years since their last competition, that was held on Pinterest. The theme was Botanical Extract. I entered 3 designs & made top 10, but … Read More

posted in: JeliRAD Life | 0

    Today I want to share this awesome news with you! Project Strong Woman I met Shauna through periscope, of all places. (At one point I was actually periscoping from time to time… another platform I need to work on!) We’d watch each others live streams, sharing smoothie tips and laughs… and of course we began following each other on Instagram. That’s where I found out about her work Project Strong Woman. Go check it out! The stories Shauna shares are … Read More

Byron Bay Instagrammers Picnic

posted in: JeliRAD Life | 2

Every Tuesday morning at 9am, women (mostly) meet up at The Farm Byron Bay with one thing in common – INSTAGRAM! I attended the first “Farm” Byron Bay Instagrammers meet up, back in May this year. There were lots of lovely people to meet! It was so great to have little chats & get amongst the fun. I even won a Rove playsuit & travel pouches just for showing up & sharing photos on Instagram! I have attended a few meet ups since … Read More

Adorned – Shoot – Part II

posted in: JeliRAD Life | 0

Welcome to Adorned photoshoot part II. I did these a few Fridays ago, with my husband. In the first 7 photos I’m wearing the same outfit that I finished the Adorned shoot part I post on, but with a few Colourful additions. In the rest of the photos I’m wearing a completely different outfit, with gold make up. The jewellery is also changed up! It got rather late, I was feeling tired & a bit delirious, & our DIY lighting was getting harder … Read More

Adorned – Shoot – Part I

posted in: JeliRAD Life | 0

Last Friday My husband and I did an impromptu photo shoot. I was really excited by the September 2015 Patternmash theme – Vuvalini, inspired by the new Mad Max Fury Road film. It reminded me of the AMAZING Vogue April 2014 campaign – Tomorrows Tribe! (I’ll do a separate post to share those images.) The theme Vuvalini made me think about the idea of hoarding beautiful things, collecting treasures, the value we put on what we adorn ourselves in. I wanted to create some images, using ALL my jewellery, … Read More

R U OK?

posted in: JeliRAD Life | 0

The past few weeks I’ve noticed a campaign going around called R U OK? I knew it had something to do with asking your friends if they are ok, and generally taking an interest in people’s well being, to help prevent depression and even suicide. But thats all I knew. I didn’t investigate, no one bought it up in discussion, and no one asked me if I was ok? Not that I even really thought about it, until the last … Read More

Moyo magazine feature

I have been featured in the latest issue of Moyo magazine – Issue 7 2014, in the Student Showcase section. I’m on page 138! How exciting is that!? I knew I was going to be, but even so, part of me wondered if they’d really include me. Silly self doubt creeping in. But there I am! Alongside a selection of other amazing designers who I greatly respect & admire. Rebecca Ng | Liz Solfield | Carolyn Greifield | Joanne Cocker | Mary … Read More

Ikea 2015 “bookbook”

posted in: JeliRAD Life | 0

I saw the new IKEA 2015 catalogue “bookbook” campaign the other day. It’s kind of clever and funny… but also kind of REALLY annoying. What do you think? Some people couldn’t live without Ikea, covering every inch of their space with it. Some people are proud of having no Ikea in their home and that they have never set foot in the place! I’m somewhere in between. I love it, but my home isn’t dominated by it, at all. I prefer an eclectic … Read More

Flowers & Treasures + Flat lays = SO MUCH FUN!

posted in: JeliRAD Life | 1

I have day dreamed about photographing all my sacred geometry, trinkets and treasures in flat lays for a while now. You know… one of those idea’s that you know will be RAD but it just stays at the back of your mind in the “yes it will be fun but you have more important things to do” area… and it just gets left behind. Flats lays have such great impact and are really fun and simple to put together. I love how they aren’t … Read More

Pattern Design with Pattern Base

posted in: JeliRAD Life | 2

It was in April 2013 that I made the decision to seriously learn about surface pattern design. I’d been searching for about 6 months+ for a course specialising in pattern design, but I could only find TAFE textile courses that didn’t resonate with my vision, and ISCD‘s AMAZING(still on my to do list) looking Surface Design Diploma course, which I couldn’t/still can’t afford. I finally found and signed up to Kristi O’Meara’s Skill Share course Pattern Design: Patterns for Printed Textiles and Products. … Read More

Creation in Motion

posted in: JeliRAD Life | 0

Creation in motion is a time lapse video I made when I put one of my ideas into action. I had the idea for a while but having a new born baby put it on hold. Finally I found windows of time to cut out the many petals from old national geographic magazines that haunt every garage sale and op shop I visit. I first made the petal template, which is actually a lot harder than you might think! I … Read More

50 mandalas in 50 days

posted in: JeliRAD Life | 0

50 day mandala challenge! Between module one (Aug 2013) and two (Nov 2013) of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design I decided to keep my creativity flowing by setting myself a little challenge. I set out to draw one mandala a day for 50 days. Most days it went fine.. some days I found it harder to unwind and relax to get into the right head space to just let the drawings appear freely onto the paper. Overall … Read More
