a forest fairy/ šumska vila

*The photographs are from my garden (it's been a while since I had time to go hiking or something like that)
* The illustration represent a forest fairy ( I've used colour pencils, water colours and coffee to pain it)

I've started writing a story about a forest fairy recently, it's in one of my little nephew's notebooks and I hope to finish it soon. There is also an entire series of stories about a little boy that lives in a circus that I have made up especially for my nephew and that I should really put on paper before I forget them or something (though he seems to remember them quite well) Anyhow, I guess that story is where I got the inspiration for this illustration. The only problem is that I forgot about the painting on the other side of the paper (painted with acrylic paints) so when I applied water colours and coffee above the colour pencils... the stains made their appearance...It's not a big deal as I will probably be making a few more similar ones, but I should probably keep it in mind and apply new rule one sketch or illustration per paper.

Počela sam pisati priču o šumskoj vili nedavno, u nekoj je od bilježnica moga nećaka i nadam se završiti je uskoro. Tu je i cijela serija proča o dječaku koji živu u circkusu koje sam izmislila posebno za nećaka i koje bi stvarno trebala staviti crno na bijelo prije nego ih zaboravim (iako ih on čini se dobro zna). Uglavnom, valjda je ta priča inspiracija za ilustraciju. Jedini problem je što sam zaboravila da je na drugoj strani papira slika s akrilnim bojama i onda kad sam stavila sloj vodenih boja i kave, pojavile su se mrlje...nije neka šteta jer ću raditi još ovakvih ilustracija, ali moram imati na umu novo pravilo...jedan list papira za jednu skicu i ilustraciju.


  1. Sono certa che la storia che stai scrivendo sia adorabile, sia i disegni che le foto sono bellissimi! Buon weekend Ivana!

  2. What a beautiful idea to do for your nephew, that's wonderful. I love this :)) Happy weekend to you doll xx

  3. Aaah yes, fairy drawings! I always adore seeing your works. I love how you're never afraid to use bright, bright colors--never let that go! People oftentimes are afraid of using highly saturated colors so hold on to that ability of yours. <3 These pictures are so majestic.

    && yay for also being a mountain goat! I bet you're an awesome mountain climber. That made me laugh. :) Have a wonderful day, my dear! <3

  7. Sarà sicuramente una bellissima storia! Che bella idea!

  8. This idea is very nice, indeed. I respect such people who really care about their children education, so I believe you are a really nice aunt:) I also like the sketch which you've created, that fairy looks very special and pretty:)
    The photographs from our garden are also fabulous, hope to see more:0))

  9. You know you are really good at loosing yourself in what you are passionate about and just keeping it that way. I admire you for that. Writing is always a way to escape, well, for me. Even if no one reads the book. It is just for you to get out your thoughts and imaginations. Cute drawing by the way. Her eyes, wow! Beautiful!

  10. I think it's so sweet that you write stories for your nephew. They come straight from the heart and those are the stories that touch people. I'm looking forward to it!

Today I'm taking you to Rujište, a mountain oasis located only a short drive away from Mostar city. This beautiful area is located on mountain Prenj. Nicknamed the Herzegovina Himalayas, mountain Prenj boosts of peaks over two thousand meters high. We didn't go all the way to the top this time, though. Instead, we payed another visit to Snow House (Snježna kuća) hotel. This time I shared my lunch with the hotel's cat, not the dog (for the yellow dog I made friends with last time was nowhere to be seen). In addition, we tried the new recreational hiking track. I'm happy to report that my review of this track will be a positive one. The length of the track is around one kilometer, the climb is approximately seventy meters so it is perfect for recreational hikers.  Moreover, there are workout tables and instructions throughout the track (for those who really want to get serious about their fitness). Weekends are a great time to get back to shape (or at least try to). Spe…

Inspired by..... Tijana/ Nadahnuta....Tijanom

Hi everyone! It's time for another Inspired The medium is acrylic on cardboard. This time I illustrated Tijana from fashion abejita. Painting lace is always a challenge and I'm aware that I have a long way to go when it comes to illustrating fabrics, but all things considering, I think I did pretty well. In fact, I'm quite happy with how this painting turned out. This outfit is a summery one, but it is suitable for Spring as well. Besides, green is in this Spring. 
Zdravo svima! Vrijeme je za još jednu Nadahnuta s...objavu. Medij su akrilne boje na kartonu. Ovaj put sam naslikala Tijanu sa bloga fashion abejita. Slikati čipku je izazov i znam da imam još puno toga za naučiti kada je ilustriranje tekstila u pitanju, no  kada se sve uzme u obzir, mislim da ova slika nije loše ispala. Zapravo,  poprilično sam zadovoljna s time kako je slika ispala. Ova kombinacija je ljetna, ali zapravo se može nositi i na proljeće. Osim toga, zelena je sada u trendu.

This is what…


Hello everyone! How are you? I'm in bed with fever, I think I caught a virus or something. Anyhow, today I have a few October outfit proposals to share with you. I sure love getting dressed in autumn. With this fall styling ideas, I'm joining Modish Matrons (fifty shades of fall) Linkup. I'm also linking this post with Mica's Weekly Wear Linkup. 
1. ORANGE DRESS STYLED WITH A LONG GREEN VEST AND A VINTAGE BLAZER What says October better than an orange dress? Orange is the colour of warmth. It is also the colour of Halloween and pumpkins. So, I'd say it is a pretty good choice for this time of year. I love wearing this  Bellissima dress (see how I styled it here, here and here). I paired this orange dress with a long green vest (besides m last post, I also wore it here , here and here) and a curd vintage blazer (see how I styled it here). I finished the outfit with black square heel boots (previously worn here and here) and a bag (previously worn here and here). Ove…
