Winter magic (my fashion illustrations of the day)/ Zimska čarolija (moje modne ilustracije dana)

My last illustration was focused on Spring. Today, my inspiration is Winter. Maxi dresses. Crazy accessories. Big sleeves. Fur coats. That calm at the end of the day. Silent nights.  Sky filled with twinkling stars. Winter magic. 

Moja zadnja ilustracija bila je u tonu proljeća. Nadahnuće za današnju je zima. Duge haljine. Ludi modni dodaci. Veliki rukavi. Krzneni kaputi. Zimska čarolija. Taj smiraj na kraju dana. Tihe noće. Nebo prekriveno zvijezdama koje sjaje. Zimska čarolija.

This illustration is actually a remake of this one. Yes, I didn't manage to salvage it. However, I managed to turn it into something else. I used only watercolours on this one, but I managed to create a collage effect. I'm not sure does this one qualified as mixed media. As you can see I added tiny bits of paper and bonded them with water and then painted on them with watercolour. So, the components are just paper, water and watercolours. How do you like this fashion illustration? Do you like this trend of big sleeves?

Ova ilustracija je zapravo prepravak ove. Da, nažalost nisam je uspjela spasiti. No, uspjela sam je pretvoriti u nešto drugo. Koristila sam samo vodene boje, ali uspjela sam stvoriti efekt kolaža. Nisam sigurna je li se ovo može nazvati mješanim medijem. Kao što vidite dodala sam male komadiće papira i povezala ih vodom i onda sam ih oslikala vodenim bojama. Tako da su u pitanju samo vodene boje, papir i voda. Kako vam se sviđa ova modna ilustracija? Sviđa li vam se ovaj trend velikih rukava?

. This illustration on the other hand is mixed media. I used red nail-polish on top of the watercolours. That would be the red part of this dress. I played with collage on this one as well. This second illustration also depicts a maxi dress but there is a fur coat on top of it. Do you like it?

 Ova ilustracija pak je mješavina medija. Koristila sam crveni lak za nokte povrh vodenih boja. I na ovoj sam se zaigrala na temu kolaža.  To bi bio crveni dio ove haljine. Druga ilustracija također prikazuje dugu haljinu, ali preko nje je i krzneni kaput. Sviđa li vam se?





  1. I love the sleeves of the blue dress! Lovely drawings :)

  2. This illustration is so beautiful. I really love it! It's great how you used mixed media items like nail polish in your work. I do like big bell sleeves. I see a lot of vintage pieces from the 80's with fantastic bubble sleeves and more flowy sleeves in boho styles. I am a huge fan of this style in design. The fur maxi dress looks so Fabulous with fur over it. You are so talented dear, can't wait to see more of your fashion illustrations. Hope you have a great week:)

    1. thank you sweetie. I'm a fan of this style as well.

  12. I really like how you added different types of media to create a 3D effect on these illustrations. The collage really adds to the visual interest of the designs. I love the remake and the transformation you made with it. The flared sleeves are a really cool detail and create a great focal point to the entire outfit.

  13. Naravno da mi se sviđa :) Tako je moćna i dramatična, ma savršena! Tvoje ideje me zaista iznova oduševljavaju, a posebno kada mešaš različite elementa, sredstva i ideje <3

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…
