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

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!

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

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

Welcome to my Flashback Friday post. Back in 2001 I was doing a BTEC Art foundation Course at Strode College, UK. Although I enjoyed the course I felt pretty lost in my direction and speciality skill. While most people were dead set on their area of skill (screen printing, graphic design, film or fine art), I wondered between everything, doing a blend of collage, photography, painting and photoshop. Our 4th assignment brief was “Identity”. That was it… we could do what ever we liked. … Read More
