Inspired by Tijana / Nadahnuta s Tijanom....

Time for another Inspired by.... feature. So, recently I illustrated Tijana from blog fashionabejita. The medium I  have chosen is watercolour on paper. It feels nice to be doing aquarelle art again, but to be honest at the moment I'm enjoying drawing just as much. Yesterday, I've done a few colour pencil drawings. So, it is mostly  pencils drawings and watercolours these days. Sometimes I even combine the two because mixed media is always fun. Right now, I'm really missing working with oil paints, but well there are only 24 hours in a day. Probably it will be a while until I take up oil painting again. I don't really have a favourite medium, I always felt comfortable working with different techniques. Anyhow, this painting was inspired by this post. It is a wonderful post, do check it out.

Vrijeme za još jednu Nadahnuta s...rubriku. Ilustrirala sam, nedavno, Tijanu s bloga fashionabejita. Medij su vodene bojice na papiru.  Lijepo je opet raditi akvarele, ali da budem iskrena, trenutno jednako uživam i u crtanju. Jučer sam napravila nekoliko crteža bojicama. Tako da u zadnje vrijeme, većinom su u rotaciji bojice i vodene boje. Ponekad kombiniram oboje jer je uvijek zabavno iskombinirati medije. Trenutno mi nedostaje baš slikanje s uljanim bojama, ali nažalost u danu ima samo 24 sata. Vjerojatno će potrajat dok opet ne počnem slikati s uljanim pojama. Zapravo i nemam neki omiljeni medij, uvijek mi je bilo ugodno raditi s različim tehnikama. Kako god, ova slika je nadahnuta ovom objavom. Divna je objava, obavezno je pogledajte.

  8. Hello there Ivana! Hope you're doing right!

    I really love Tijana's style, she always brings up that happy-youthful attitude that is so contagious regardless of your humor, and I have to add her pictures are stunning and I always end up inspired after visiting her blog. So I think she's one of the best references you could find for your art. I love the result and I'm happy to see that you're always changing ways of doing things :D That's the best way to keep up your creative moto, I swear ;)

    See you in the next post and happy October, Ivana!

    1. thank you Pablo, I'm doing ok, thank you. Yes, I love her style too!!! the post that inspired me to make this painting was full of positive energy.

  13. Evo Tijanice :-) Odlicno si je ilustrovala, zaista si prenela njenu pozitivnu energiju iz fantasticnog posta :-)

  14. Ja, pa ja tek sad vidim ovo! Šta sam sve propustila. Ja mislim da mi je ovo tvoja najdraža ilustracija do sada (kada sam ja u pitanju). Mnogo mi se sviđa kako je ispalo i kako si prenela pozitivni duh koji izvire iz originalne fotografije. Čak mi je tvoja verzija još nekako draža i pozitivnija. Hvala ti na svemu! Baš si me oduševila <3

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.

Yesterday I tore myself away from the laptop to make a new fashion illustration. It's been a while since I made my last fashion illustration. I've been spending an insane amount of time behind the screen lately (who ever said blogging is easy, right?) working on new blog posts. At some point yesterday, I decided to get up, grab some watercolour pencils and paint a new fashion illustration. Friday Fashion Illustration is not the most regular feature on my blog, but this summer at least I can try to change that. While I was working on my new fashion illustration, I test drove watercolour pencils from Steadler  brand (not sponsored). It's been ages since I last used watercolour pencils. I'll wait for a bit before I give this brand a detailed review, but for now I can say that I quite liked these pencil watercolours. So far so good, you might say. Steadler brand claims to be sustainable and  sustainability is important to me. It is something that applies to every aspect o…


Hello, darlings! How have you been? I finally found some time to sit down and write this bookish post. I'll share some summer outfits with you today, but mostly I'll talk books. Yes, it's time for another reading and rereading update! Summer is such a perfect time to read, isn't it? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love to read all year around, but I still see summer as the ideal reading time. I wonder why is it so? Maybe it is somewhat on a subconscious level, seeing all those images of people reading on the beach.  Is it because summer is the traditional 'reading time' for many people? Is it because most people go on their vacation in the summer? Is it because most people use vacation time to catch up on reading? Is it the bookworm in me getting excited getting excited about making the most out of the 'reading season'? Is it the joy of reading in the open? It might be any or all of these things, but I do enjoy reading in summertime. How about you? D…


If you know me, you know that I'll grab every opportunity to don on a statement dress. Life is to short to wear boring dresses. Nothing is quite as dramatic as a statement red dress, am I right or what? I was planning on walking miles that night, so I paired my red dress with comfy shoes, a straw bag and a pink blazer (just in case if it gets windy). I'm a fan of wearing dramatic dresses with comfy shoes, it makes them stand out more- and it can make the outfit not only more comfortable but also fresh. I wore this red midi dress with ruffled sleeves for a date night in Chinese restaurant Asia in Split (HERE- one of my favourite places to grab Chinese food in the city). I had a lovely time dinning there with my significant other. I pretty much always order the same thing: home made noodles with veggies and dumplings. As always, the food was yummy. This restaurant is located in my old neighbourhood Split 3 (address: street Poljička cesta 39 ) and I definitely recommend paying it…
