I already showed you this illustration here (when I talked about painting with make up), but in the meantime I added some finishing touches, so I'm posting it anew. Have a lovely day everyone!

Već sam vam pokazala ovu ilustraciju ovdje (kada sam pričala o slikanju sa šminkom), ali u međuvremenu sam dodala neke završne poteze, tako da je iznova objavljujem. Ugodan dan vam želim!

  8. Mislila sam da je savršena, a sada mi treba neka nepostojeća reč jer je još lepša nego prethodna :)

  9. Hi, dear Ivana! Very beautiful illustration and you know what, when I saw the page, I thought it was fabric, like painted on fabric to be a skirt or a scarf. I have to show you the link for the scarf, need to remember it :) It's so easy to knit with fingers :) Why don't you paint your illustrations on fabric, that would be great to see a scarf that way! I love the illustration! I've started posting on Fridays too, so please forgive me for the "signature" :) It's automatic after my name :) Hope you have a great weekend! - new post: The Power of a Smile

    1. I often paint on fabric! I'll prepare more blogs about it soon:)

  10. You did a great job with this one! She has such expressive eyes!

  11. Beautiful!!! Have a great weekend! Kiss:))


  12. You never cease to amaze me with your art skill Ivana darling. If you lived in the US, I'd probably invite you to my class to give art lessons every so often. Both my students and I would benefit greatly from your skills. I can't draw or paint anything to save my life. Even though sometimes I refer to myself as an artist cos of my makeup skills but I don't believe that counts, LOL. I clicked back to the original post. Phenomenal! And now the addition of makeup makes it really pop some more. I absolutely love it! Kudos girl and have a fantastic weekend.

    1. thank you so much. I'm sure I would enjoy a painting class with your students. I used to volunteer regularly with kids, I was even in charge of one workshop project for kids with special needs and it was a lot of fun!

  13. Those bright eyes are so striking and lovely!

  14. Nice nice! Depthless eyes!

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 

Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …


I was thinking about why I like tartan pattern so much, when one reason crossed my mind. I figured that it probably has something to do with the history and the culture behind this particular pattern. After all, I always say that traditional and folklore clothing (be it original or reproduced) carries additional value. Traditional patterns can be such an wonderful source of inspiration. Traditional patters have soul to them, one might say. The history of tartan is particularly interesting. Today we mostly associate tartan with Scotland, but according to some historians, tartan like fabrics were used by ancient Celtic populations spreading across the British Isles as early as the sixth and the eight century BC. Well, that one old pattern for sure! However, even if tartan clothes are really as old as ancient Celts, it is the still Scotland that is responsible for tartan we know today. Did you know that different tartan patterns can represent different Scottish families? Something like …
