DIY of the day (how to make an ecologically friendly decorative hair pin?)/ Napravi sam projekt dana (kako napraviti ekološki svjesnu ukrasnu ukosnicu)

How to make an ecologically friendly decorative hair pin? By using recycled materials. For this DIY you will need:

- a bit of thick paper or cardboard
-one old hair pin
- a bit of fabric (I used fabric from an old pillow case)
- some paint ( I used nail polish but you can use markers, or paints of any sort)

I think the photographs are pretty self explanatory but just in case I'll explain once again (similar DIY here) . So, this is how you do it. You cut a bit of thick paper or cardboard in the shape of a heart. Then you sew fabric around it and if you want apply some paint to decorate it. Finally, you sew the heart onto the hair pin. Easy, isn't it? Do you feel tempted to try it?

Kako napraviti ekološki svjesnu ukrasnu ukosnicu? Tako što ćete koristiti reciklirane materijale.  Za ovaj napravi sam projekt trebati će vam:

- malo debljeg papira ili kartona
- jedna stara ukosnica
- malo tkanine ( ja sam koristila tkaninu s jedne stare jastučnice)
- malo boje ( ja sam koristila lak za nokte ali možete koristiti markere ili bilo kakve boje).

Mislim da fotografije sve lijepo pokazuju, ali za svaki slučaj pokazati ću još jednom (vidi sličnu stvar ovdje) ....tako da...Odrežete malo debljeg papira ili kartona u obliku srca. Onda ušijete tkaninu okolo i malo ukrasite bojom ako želite. Konačno, zašijete srce za ukosnicu. Jednostavno, zar ne? Želite li pokušati?

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…
