Maggie Rogers – Alaska

posted in: Music | 0

Maggie Rogers – Alaska A few weeks ago I discovered THE Maggie Rogers masterclass with Pharrell Williams. I was immediately mesmerised by Maggie’s presence & maturity. When the song started playing I had goosebumps. It is amazing! The Video Watch the below video from 18.14min to see Maggie Rogers section.  For me, it’s sound is reminiscent of Flight Facilities “Crave You” & The XX “Crystalised”. Although it is definitely stand alone. I really like Pharrell’s comments about being individual, singular & authentic. It crosses over into all creative … Read More

If you haven’t ever seen this photoshoot, you are in for a treat! I love it! I love everything about this campaign. EVERYTHING! It’s just AMAZING! The texture, the rawness, the layering. The model, the makeup, the hair. The lighting, & the understated elegance of it all! My shoot doesn’t even … 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

Katherin Deboer – Music Mondays

posted in: Music | 0

So, this is a bit of a follow on from last weeks post. But it’s just a quick one! I listen to Pandora A LOT and I have a station called “Radio Citizen” that plays music that is similar to… Radio Citizen. When the DJ Vadim song came on (from his album The Soundcatcher), I had to research it and share it, because of the vocal! I discovered the featured singer is Katherin Deboer . She used to be part of the band “Belleruche“. More … Read More

Bajka – Music Mondays

posted in: Music | 0

It took me a while to pick who to share with you today. I finally decided to go with this combo! A friend introduced me to Bonobo when he stayed with us for 5 weeks in 2010. He played me “Days to Come” from the 2006 album “Days to Come“. I became completely obsessed! I listened to it about a hundred times. My daughter (2.5 at the time) loved it too and would sing along as best she could. Bonobo is so chilled out … Read More

JeliRAD Colour Palette – Belongil Beach Heart

I’m not being too precious about which photo I use and what the outcome of the colours are and although I am not immediately drawn to this palette, you just never know how it could translate into a design, until you try it out. It could be incredible! The design process should not be ruled over by a colour palette you may have decided to use. If things flow in a certain direction and a colour becomes unsuitable, just don’t use … Read More

JeliRAD Colour Palette – Woolgoolga Beach

Welcome to Colour Palette Wednesdays. I have decided to start making colour palettes from my photo archives. I have so many photo’s that aren’t being used for anything other than adorning my walls (yes real photos on real walls) or hiding in my photo albums (yes real photos in real albums!). So I thought what better way to use them, than to share them with all of you in this fun, colourful, creative way. Most of the colour palettes I have used in my designs so far … 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

Creative Business Women’s High Tea

posted in: Events | 2

North Coast Creative Business Women’s High Tea is a new event in my area. At first I wasn’t sure if I should go. I can be quite shy sometimes & I’m not a massively social person. But I have decided I should get out more and be open to new opportunities and experiences. So I booked my spot. I didn’t really know what to expect other than my friend Nina was singing during the break and my friend Sahar was providing yummy Organic Miracles … Read More

Rex Ray – Artist Inspiration

Using an amazing technique, Rex Ray produces exquisite and unique works of art that really stand out and ooze style! They have a nostalgic, art deco, retro, curvy vibe and also tap into a fantasy realm which is very appealing to me. The shapes, bright colours and delicate lacy details make his work so stunning. I just love it all! “Rex Ray is a San Francisco based fine artist, whose collages, paintings and design work have been exhibited at galleries and … Read More

Kay Nielsen – Fantasy Fairy Tale Illustration

I am absolutely in love with fantasy fairy tale illustrations from bygone eras. I love getting lost in the imagery, full of wonder, dripping with style, magic, mystery, elegance and intrigue. There is just something gritty and nostalgic about it that makes me want to jump in and become part of the dreamlike fantasy. I am going to look at an extensive array of fairy tale artists, from a list I have compiled, that goes on forever. So brace yourselves for a weekly dose … Read More
