Inspired by...... Paola Lauretano (fashion illustration)

Hello everyone! Today I'm back with another illustration inspired by a fashion blogger. This time I was inspired by Paola Lauretano from express yourself blog ( check it out here). Paola's blog is one of those I follow regularly and it is always a fantastic place to look for fashion and travel inspiration. Great blog for sure. If you want to see the outfit that I illustrated, you may follow this link. Who says that winter fashion can't be fun? It sure can be, as Paola demonstrates here. If you ask me, yellow is a great choice in winter. Let's us create our own sun. Now, about this illustration. The medium is watercolour on paper. It was a very fun outfit to illustrate and I'm satisfied with how it turned out. Painting fur is a challenge but I'm getting the hang of it. 

Zdravo svima! Danas se vraćam s još jednom ilustracijom nadahnutom modnom blogericom. Ovoga puta bila sam nadahnuta Paolom Lauretano s bloga express yourself (možete ga pogledati ovdje).  Blog Paole je jedan od onih koje pratim redovito i uvijek je fantastično mjesto za pronaći nadahnuće za putovanja i modu. Stvarno sjajan blog. Želite li pogledati odjevnu kombinaciju koju sam ilustrirala, možete požete otvoriti ovu poveznicuTko kaže da zimska moda ne može biti zabavna? Naravno da može, kao što Paola ovdje pokazuje. Ako mene pitate, žuta je odličan izbor zimi. Stvorimo sami svoje sunce. Sada, što se tiče same ilustracije. Medij su vodene boje na papiru. Zadovoljna sam sa time kako je ispala. Slikanje krzna je izazov, ali ide mi se bolje.

  14. Hi, dear Ivana! I also read Paola's blog and it is really amazind, for the fashion style she has, the history she writes about thee places she goes - it's really marvellous! I like that she wears color in the winter too, what I think is good - not only beige, black and brown. Loved the illustration and I recognized her style, the nice shoes, hat and jacket! Always a great illustrator! Hope you are fine, dear Ivana, and that you have a beautiful week with many new illustrations! Hugs!

  15. It's so perfect!!!
    I loved do much!

  23. I have visited her blog before, and her style is inspiring. This is a fun tribute to her.

  24. Again, great job on the illustration, Ivana. Yellow is for sure a good choice for gray winter days, it always brighten up the moody ones ;)
    ps... what kind of paper did you use, Ivana, if you don't mind me asking?

  25. Paola is so stylish! I love this drawing of her. Gemma x

  26. She's really cool! I followed her blog a lot when I had a blog on fashion. My very first blog, before this one.

  28. She wears yellow well!!! Nice illustration!

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…
