Uradi sam "nadahnimo se brojevima" / DIY "be inspired by numbers"

Ovaj put vila slovinka ima prednost ( aluzija na djelo u stihu Jurja Barakovića, a i Zoranićeve Planine, ali i ako niste čitali,  shvaćate.) Samo ću ukratko reći što je potrebno za oslikati brojeve na tkanini, a to je kist, boja za tkaninu i nešto da stavite ispod da se boja ne preslika na drugu stranu. Mislim da daljnje upute nisu potrebne, ako jesu recite, ali po mome iskustvu naši ljudi ne trebaju preočite upute. Prava svrha ovog današnjeg oslikavanja je bila usrećiti moga nećaka.  Ima dvije i pol godine i ukratko obožava brojeve. Prvo smo oslikali (zajedno smo držali kist većinu vremena) jednu moju staru košulju, a zatim i njegovu majicu. 

Today DIY is all about making my two and half nephew happy. He is crazy about numbers so we painted some numbers on his t- shirt and my shirt. So this is basically painting on clothes. What do you need for a project like this one? I've already written about this but I'll repeat. You need special paint and the kind that is suitable for painting not the kind to colour clothes. ( it is not expressive, about 2.5 euros plus it will last you for a long time because you don't have to use a lot. In fact this is an extremely low cost DIY)

step 1. Find the item of clothing suitable for this DIY. In my experience,  almost any material will do but the silk and the wool. Read the instructions if you want to know more.

Step 2. Take a brush and dip it into the paint. Paint whatever you imagined, just make sure you  put something under( a book in my case) so the colour doesn't get on the other side of the shirt or whatever item of clothing you have selected. If you been reading my previous DIY posts, you might have noticed that I often do this kind of thing on an ironing desk)

  Step 3. Wait for it to dry for about an hour. That's it! Put it in the closet or wear it right away.

  As I said, I also painted some numbers on my nephew's tee or better to say we painted it because my nephew was holding the brush as well. So basically, we did the painting or writing whatever you want to call it together. On the photograph below is his tee that we painted.  

My nephew really enjoyed this DIY as you can imagine. This is a really fun activity to do with a child. It is also good for their cognitive development. Anyway, I highly recommend doing something like this with your loved ones.   I know we are all overworked and stressed often, but we must remember to dedicate time to one another and that especially goes dedicating time to the children. If you are a parent or  you're taking care of somebody's child, take the time and the effort and include them into activities, find the things you can do together that are suitable for that child's age and capabilities. Remember, fashion can also be all about fun. It is all up to you. Life is what we make of it.

Thank you for taking the time to read this or to skim through it- no hard feelings if you haven't read carefully;)

Mislim da je dobar način za naučiti dijete brojeve ovako ih  oslikati  na nekoj majici.  To može biti divna zajednička aktivnost. Ne želim zvučati preknjiški, ali vjerujem da su ovakvi projekti i igre doista dobre za intelektualni razvoj djeve. Danas sve manje vremena posvećujemo jedni drugima, svi smo nekako preumorni, previše radimo...Zato je sjajno nešto napraviti zajedno. Mom nećaku je ovo  stvarno bilo zabavno. Naravno da bih ja to brže i urednije (ne i bolje) sama napravila, ali to nije važno. Mislim da bi trebali više cjeniti jedni druge, uvijek postoji neki način da uključimo jedni druge u projekte koje volimo i interese koje dijelimo. Mislim da čak i moda može biti zabavna igra za djecu ili za nas same. Život je ono što od njega napravimo.

Hvala što ste odvojili vrijeme da ovo pročitate ili samo proletite pogledom;) Znam danas treba moći pronaći vrijeme i samo za proletiti pogledom...Kako god, meni je drago.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
