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.

  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

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

  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!

  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!

  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.

HOW TO STYLE AN OVERSIZED BEIGE SCARF: 2 OUTFIT PROPOSALS

Whether you're longing for spring to come asap or not, one thing is certain-  winter is not going  anywhere. The cold weather is not going to end up anytime soon, not in this part of the world. It's snowing in most of Europe and the weather is quite cold. What are we do to if not dress appropriately, and that means dress as warmly as possible? Not long ago I published a post about winter accessories that keep us warm. Today I'll be talking about one of them in particular and that would be the oversized scarf.  I've always loved big scarves and I have quite a few of them, some vintage, some I made myself. Lately, however it occurred to me that I should get one of those new trendy oversized ones, the kind that you can use as blanket. You know how much I love colour, right? Well, beige is no exception so I was happy to see it listed as one of the biggest trends this season. I picked up this beige oversized scarf for next to nothing in New Yorker. It's super cozy and …

BEST BOOKS AND FAV WRITERS OF 2018

Writing this post took forever, and not just because I'm not exactly sure how many books I read in 2018. I did try to keep a track on goodreads but sometimes I forget to add books that I'm reading there. I'd say that I probably read around 80 books last year, give or take a dozen. I do love to read, as readers of my blog might already know or suspect. Here comes a list of my last year favourites. The list is written in no particular order. The links are not affiliated ( I tried to join Amazon affiliate program in the past but they rejected me saying that my blog doesn't have enough views so yeah it's all regular links). In cases of classics the books are linked to sites such as Project Gutenberg or Oxford University where you can find free copies. In case of modern works, I linked them up to my own blog posts (when relevant), Wikipedia or the authors' sites. 



I had a pretty good reading year, I'd say. Some of the books I read I actually discovered in my ow…

HOW TO MAKE 3D FASHION ILLUSTRATION DRESSES WITH DRY FLOWERS?

Everyone knows that flowers make for a great prop, something very useful in these visual days. Moreover, in this time of social media, we are all looking for good photography props, aren't we? Bloggers, influences and what not, everyone wants to make their photographs pop. Flowers are a great way to do just that. Dried flowers are even better, because you don't have to worry about their expiry date. Dried flowers are also a great way to recycle (when you make your own) and preserve memories. I've been drying flowers for quite some time and there is really nothing to it. You can also buy dried flowers (or even fresh ones if you prefer). They are simply a perfect addition to flat lay photography.
Today I'll speak about creating 3D dresses on fashion illustrations. Now, you don't have to know how to do fashion illustration to try your hand at this. You can trace some of the fashion templates available online (be sure to make sure the author is o.k with that) or you c…
