making of...pravljenje...

Looks like this is going to be a DIY week because it seems to be all I'm writing about (and I'm breaking my rule of not posting more than once a day). Firstly, I want to share with you this collar necklace...that thing around my neck, I've made it---and collar inspired necklace I chose to call it.( I plan to do a DIY post about it pretty soon.)

Izgleda da će ovo biti tjedan posvećen "uradi sam" projektima.

Druge, pokazujem vam napredak i završetak moje nove slike Korčule. Nadam se da uspjela uhvatiti barem mali dio ljepote ovog mjesta.

I hate when things go to waste and I love a good challenge...and that is all you really need if you want to connect art and recycling. For this  DIY project you will need:  1. an empty shampoo bottle 2. acrylic paint (in this case you only need the brown one) 3. a bit of paper and paper towel 4. some kind of cereal (I have used barley but you can use rice or whatever) 5. a bit of nail-polish to add a finishing touch 6.  a bit of something (anything decorative or shiny might do the trick) to tie a bow. The procedure:  - First paint the bottle with thick layers of paint and immediately apply a bit of  paper towel to get a nice texture. After it is dried apply another
