DIY project of the day (bird print decoupage box)/ kreativni projekt dana (dekupaž kutija s uzorkom ptica)

Speaking of birds......Besides being a bird lover, I'm also a bird print/pattern lover. Today I'm posting a simple DIY project. I bought this wooden box a while back. To customize it, I decided to paint it with acrylics. Apparently that wasn't enough for me, so after I while I tried the decoupage technique on this little box. I selected bird print. I must say that I'm really happy with the result. I love this little yellow box. It is like a rain of sunshine. Do you like it? Do you enjoy taking part in DIY projects? Do you like bird print and patterns?

Kad smo već na temi ptica....Osim što volim ptice, volim i uzorke na temu pticu. Danas obavljujem jednostavni napravi sam projekt.  Prije dosta vremena kupila sam ovu drvenu kutiju. Kako bi je učinila više svojom, odlučila sam se oslikati akrilnim bojama. To mi nije bilo dovoljno, pa sam odlučila isprobati i dekupaž tehniku na ovoj maloj kutijici. Odabrala sam ptičji uzorak. Moram reći da sam zadovoljna s rezultatiom. Jako mi se sviđa ova žuta kutijica. Baš je kao malo sunce. Uživate li vi u napravi sam projektima? Volite li ptičje printove i uzorke?

  6. Dear Ivana, I like the wooden box both with your illustration but also with the birds on it! I have to admit that I assuem I have too less patience for a DIY project like this - although I like the result so much! Birds are wonderful.

  11. Linda decoração amei, bom final de semana, obrigado pela visita.

  12. Very cool idwa! I'll keep this in my mind. Thanks for sharing Ivana))

  13. Hai fatto davvero un gran bel lavoro Ivana!
    Ti è venuta deliziosa quella scaola con il motivo ad uccellini, mi iacciono tantissimo i colori che hai usato! :D

  14. Dearest Ivana,
    your decoupage-bird-box looks lovely - I'm also a "birds-friens", so I like the bird motif VERY much, too. You've made "something new out of something old" and it's a nice DIY - so it would also perfectly fit my ANL linkup. Do you want? I would be very happy!
    Hugs Traude

  15. Lovely post dear! Have a great weekend! xx

  17. Thank you for sharing your point of view! Indeed, this is the kind of information I was ready to discuss, and be part of...

    I really enjoyed checking the differences of opinion, and yours really gave me the perspective I needed!

    Thank You!

  18. I am glad that you decided to do the bird print, Ivana as it's beautiful. I love that the end result looks vintage.

  19. I don't just like this, I love it! Turned out so beautiful. Almost looks like a different box than the original. I'm not a huge bird lover but your choice of paper is perfect. I also don't do a ton of diys but I find the few I do very fun even though they never turn out great cos I lack the patience to do it right. I collect wooden boxes like yours and use them for decoration in and around my house. Home Goods has a ton of very pretty ones. Yours reminds me of of one I own. It's not a bird print but has a vintage vibe to it that I also see in yours. By the way what do you use yours for. It's very beautiful!

    1. I still haven't decided how to use it. Perhaps it will become a gift for someone.

  20. Thanks a lot :D

    wooow, love it :D look so cool

  22. Super, preslatko izgleda :D
    sestra je nedavno kupila ljepilo za decoupage tako da je počela s tim, baš me zanima što će sve preurediti :)

    1. hvala....ja još nisam isprobala decoupage ljepilo, dosada sam više improvizirala.

  23. You've done a wonderful job! My first thought when seeing the end result, was how it looks like a prop from an old romantic movie :) Great choice of acrylics and bird print :) You must be proud to use it, knowing you've created it yourself!

  24. So beautiful, looks vintage. I love the birds on it.

  25. This is glorious!!! What a lovely project and how well you did it!!! I've done Decopage on cards and on cardboard but never on furniture!x

    1. thank you so much:) I'm still figuring out this technique.

  26. That's a grat DIY!

  35. Bravo, predivna kutijica! I ja sam se bavila dekupažom i uvek mi je milo kada sama nešto napravim, ukrasim ili osmislim. A, motiv ptica koji si koristila je jako lep i originalno izgleda.

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
