August (summary) / Kolovoz (sažetak)

I ended up posting more art than outfit posts last month and I'm glad it turned out that way even if I didn't really plan it. I posted illustrations, paintings, drawings and sketches. You got the chance to see a lot of  stuff I've been working on  in August and maybe that will be the case in this month as well. Or maybe not, I can't tell yet. I'm really happy that I'm managing to keep my 'Inspired by' feature because it is really one of my favourite ones. I've been illustration fashion bloggers for a while and I plan to keep it up. Besides that regular feature, August has mostly been marked by my experiements with using make up for painting. Sadly, my make up art days are coming to an end because I'm running out of old make up to paint with.  

Ispalo je tako da je puno više objava bilo umjetničko nego modno prošloga mjeseca, ali drago mi je što je tako ispalo, iako nisam doista ništa planirala. Objavljivala sam ilustracije, slike, crteže i skice. Mogli ste vidjeti puno toga na čemu sam radila u kolovozu, a možda će to biti slučaj i ovoga mjeseca. Možda i neće, ne mogu još reći. Drago mi je što uspijevam održati svoju "Nadahnuta s" rubriku na blogu jer mi je doista jedna od najdražih. Već dugo ilustriram modne blogerice (zasada nijednoga blogera) i planiram s time nastaviti. Osim toga, kolovoz je bio u znaku moga eksperimentiranja s korištenjem šminke za stvaranje slika. Nažalost, moji dani slikanja sa šminkom privode se kraju jer ostajem bez stare šminke s kojom bi slikala.

  11. I loved the first illustration, the ballerina and the blond girl with the yellow dress, and also the last illustration, I even think I may know that one :) Dear Ivana, I am now curious to know about your projects :) I am sure they will be amazing, like you are! I hope you find more makeup to paint, but even without the illustrations will be great! I am sure of that! Wishing you a lovely day!

  18. Super su slike, crvenokose su mi najdraže :D
    potrošila si svu staru šminku? ništa, stavi oglas da dobrovoljno primaš staru šminku, mislim da ćeš brzo opet moći slikati ;)
    imam jedan "poslovni" prijedlog, ali javit ću ti se preko poruka na instagramu :)

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…
