DIY (Fimo)---Uradi sam (Fimo)

Time for some DIY projects...and this time it will be stuff made out of Fimo (well, using it I make jewelry mostly but you can also make other things). Fimo is a German brand of polymer clay (I cannot compare it to other brands because this is the only one I tried). Here is a random selection of my works: a headpiece, a pair of earrings and a necklace. I must confess that the first two were made a long time ago , but at least I can say that these items have stood the test of time. The last one (the necklace) I've made recently and lost it somewhere. Hopefully (and probably) it will pop out again in one of my sudden home redecorating attempts.

* The belt some of you have commented on in the last post was also a DIY but since it has nothing to do with polymer clay it will have to wait some other time.

Malo mojih radova od polimerne gline (ili ti ga fima). Ovdje je nekakav slučajan odabir radova: ukras za kosu, par naušnica i ogrlica. Fimom se koristi dosta ljudi, to je njemački brend, a kako nisam isprobala neki drugi ne mogu usporediti. Prve dvije stvari sam davno napravila, ali barem mogu reći da se dobro drže već godinama (dobro naušnicama su malo ispale perlice, ali ne budimo cjepidlake), a ogrlicu sam napravila prije par mjeseci i uspjela je izgubiti...No dobro mislim da će se ponovo pojaviti nakon jednog od mojih naglih odluka o preuređenju i preslaganju svega u kući.

* Remen koji su neki komentirali u prošlom postu je isto uradi sam projekt, ali o tome neki drugi put.

  1. Another cool DIY dear Ivana! I remember that we made something with Fimo when our children where small, but to be honest I forgot in the meantime that this material exists! Of this cause thanks a lot for remembering - if I really will get into a mood for DIY this would be a great possibility!

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
