Ultra Violet Mini Spring Collection - Fashion Illustrations of the Day (Watercolour + Markers)

Easter weekend is upon us, so I'll keep this post short and sweet. These five designs are just something I came up with lately. To be honest, I'm not sure will I be able to make any of them. My sewing skills are pretty basic, but I did manage to make a few dresses in the past. However, until I buy myself a sewing machine, I probably won't do that much sewing as sewing by hand takes forever. However, one never knows. It is not completely out of the question. I might find time to transfer some of my designs from paper to real life. 

It would be lovely to make my fashion illustrations come to life. Fingers crossed. The inspiration for this mini collection was ultra violet. The medium is watercolour and markers on paper. First I applied a layer of watercolour and then I added the finishing touches using a purple and pink markers. If you scroll down, you'll be able to see how it went (and you can see how the painting had looked before I added the finishing touches). My fashion illustrations usually come with drawn faces and hairstyles, sometimes even make up because I love drawing details, but it is kind of fun to see them like in the basic form as well.  I wish I always remembered to take photographs of the drawing/painting process! How do you like these fashion illustrations? Would you wear these designs? That would be all for today. Have a lovely Easter weekend!

  5. All illustrations are beautiful! xx

  6. I hate to say this Ivana but its hard for me to read the post cos I'm stuck on looking at the images. This has got to be the very vest illustrations you've produced and I am truly blown away by how amazing it is. Perhaps because you used my favorite color? Each figure is unique and fabulous and I just can't get enough. I wish I could wave a wand and bring each and every one of them to live! Good job Ivana and happy Easter to you!!

  7. Bellissimo colore ed interpretazioni
    Buona Pasqua cara Ivana

  8. Dear Ivana, I love every single desing of your ultra violet spring collection! And I'm convinced if you would have a sewing machine you would sew them all! I'm really impressed you managed it already to sew some dresses by hand as I know sewing by hand takes forever. I got from my grandma a sewing machine for my first wedding and I'm still happy I own this machine. I sewed a lot in the past but I have to admit my sewing skills are pretty bad as I'm not correct and maybe "too creative" in this context. Nevertheless I change my clothes when necessary and patch broken clothing what at least mostly works as good as I need it :) Happy Easter, dear Ivana, enjoy it!

  20. I just love the ultra violet shades you used here and the designs just catch my eyes and make me feel peaceful. Something about the purple! Yes, please do show your step-by-step process as that would be interesting to note and appreciate. I would wear these dresses especially if they're made of light fabric as the summer here is quite killer! Thank you for sharing your fashion illustration, Ivana :) I love your passion :)

  21. Hey Ivana, love the result and the way you show us different shades of the same color, it really caught my eye and I really like the color purple because it has like a magical essence no other color has. And it would be amazing if you could bring your designs to real life! I'm sure you're more than capable to do it!


  22. nice one...again.

Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…



What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
