Once a book worm, always a book worm


painted and written on with textile paint

I'm no stranger to textile paints and I always enjoy using them. Painting on clothes is a lot of fun and a great way to refresh your wardrobe. Anyhow, today I present you with the result of my recent creative activities. Old bag made new ( I just love recycling stuff). I'm also taking an opportunity to appeal on behalf the flood victims in BIH, Croatia and Serbia. You can make a donation to the red cross  herehere and here.

Često se koristim tekstilnim bojama i baš uživam u tome. Uvijek je zabavno oslikavati odjeću, a uz to je to odličan način za osvježiti garderobu.  Početkom mjeseca sam oslikala par starih cekera koje sam pronašla...stare torbe postale su nove (uvijek me veseli iskoristi nešto nanovo).

Samo da još kažem kako je zaista divno vidjeti koliko su ljudi spremni pomoći žrtvama poplave...grozno je to što se dogodilo, ali je barem utješno vidjeti humanost na djelu. Dok imamo srca jedni za druge, ima nade!


  1. I definitely agree with you, painting on clothes is so much fun! I love doing this too, but I don't have so many ideas as you have, unfortunatelly. Sometimes I'd love to create somethign interesting, but I have no inspiration, my muse is lazy, seems to me:)
    That bag turned out really cool and original! Hope you will enjoy using it for a long time)

    1. To me inspiration always come when I don't expect it, when I'm tired and stresses...and when I do have time I don't always have the right ideas...Life is funny:)

    2. super, nice bag :)

  2. Great post dear...lovely pics..:-)

  3. Super je, originalno i unikatno. :)

  4. I have have to have 3 extra bags just in case I mess up the whole thing, LOL! It takes talent and precision and I just don't have both!

  5. Ma che idea carina!!!
    Sei davvero creativa, tesoro! :D

  6. I love your blog,dear!

  7. Is this a bag! I love it, can I have it? So fun :-)

  8. Honestly I painted only my sneakers in the past and I can't remember that I ever had painted any garment! But the result of your painting is stunning and I like it - I like also the quote, now I know why I am a bookworm :)

  11. I love the result ! Beautiful idea, I love this DIY :)

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…
