sketches (necklaces) / skice (ogrlice)

I've been working on making and designing necklaces...As you know (if you have been following regularly), I have been experimenting over sized necklaces made from faux leather. I've been trying to work out  how I want to make them and all that. Here are a few sketches and ideas and hopefully soon you'll be able to see a final product.  Perhaps making my designs really bubble and positive, sort of cartoonish 'sugar, spice and everything nice' type of stuff  is the result of  currently having a hard time in life and consequently trying to cheer myself up subconsciously.

Radila sam na pravljenu i osmišljavanju ogrlica. Kao što znate ako redovito pratite, malo sam eksperimentirala sa  velikim ogrlicama od eko kože. Pokušavala sam smisliti kako ih želim praviti i tako to. Evo par skica i ideja i nadam se da ću uskoro moći pokazati vam neke radove. Možda su mi u glavi vesele stvari u stilu crtića jer mi u zadnje vrijeme u životu ne cvjetaju ruže. Možda je to podsvijesni način da sama sebe oraspoložim.

  1. I´m so glad you enjoy this dear, looks like you have fun besides you´re pretty good at it...

  2. Your a total professional Ivana! I'll look forward to the faux Leather accessories, xoxo.

  3. Lovely designs, Ivana! I love the pink one with hearts and the last drawing with a portrait of a girl with purple hair is beautiful. I know so well how you feel... It's the same for me, the worst I feel the happiest are my drawings. But it's good that we can create to brighten our days! Hugs and smiles!

    1. yes, it is true:) there is a lot of comfort to be found in creativity!

  4. What fun designs! Bold jewelry and leather sound like a great combo :)


  5. cool drawings !!! :)

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

  7. Draga Ivana, nadam se da nije nista preozbiljno i preruzno te da ce uskoro ruze cvjetati posvuda u tvom zivotu a ne samo na ogrlicama... od srca :) Slicice su lijepe i vesele te se veselim buducim realizacijama istih :*

    1. hvala ti nije ništa preozbiljno, samo sam premorena, nekad se previše toga skupi...

  8. I ja se nadam da će sve biti ok, sve ima rešenje i sve prođe i znam da je lako reći a u praksi je drugačije, ali ipak, nadam se da mogu makar malo da dorpinesem toj pozitivnosti kojom odišu ovi crteži. Stvarno si prava umetnica :)

  9. Ciao Ivana, non vedo l'ora di vedere I tuoi gioielli! Mi dispiace che tu sia giù di morale tesoro :-( ti abbraccio forte e ti penso

    I particularly like the boldness of the triangular shaped one.

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…
