Inspired by... Natalia

Time for my Inspired by post! Unless you're a new to my blog, you've probably seen or heard about this feature before. Inspired by is a regular feature in which I do a painting or an illustration of a (fashion) blogger that I then share it with you. I've been doing this for a few years now, and it is definitely one of my favourite features on this blog. My February girl was Tijana (here), in March I illustrated Jess (here) and last month I shared with you two watercolour illustrations of Natalia (here) Today I'm sharing with you an acrylic painting inspired Natalia again. This time I illustrated two of Natalia's  outfits, you can see them here and here. Acrylic paints are not a typical choice for fashion illustration, but I like to break the rules a little bit. I loved both of these outfits and I opted for acrylics because why not?

 I've also wanted to share with you birch wood items Natalia has sent me. You could already see me wear them, but I wanted to take some up close photographs so you can have a closer look. These earrings are so pretty, aren't they? I think I didn't know about the Russian tradition of making  boxes and jewelry from birch tree until fairy recently. I love hand made things, especially traditional ones. What about you? Do you like hand made things? Do you like traditional crafts? Do you know a traditional craft? Have you every tried to learn one? I did learn embroidery, but I kind of did it on my own, tried to figure it out based on traditional embroidery I saw so I can't attest it is 100 %  traditional method. I'm not sure if embroidery counts, but if yes I know at least one traditional craft. I'd love to learn something else as well. I hope I'll get the chance. Thank you for reading & stopping by!

  1. Oh those earrings are beautiful! I love the hairpieces too. What nice gifts!

    Great to see you trying different things and material with your artwork too. I don't have a creative outlet for crafting or artwork, unless you count blogging and youtube!

    Hope that you are having a great week so far! Almost the weekend! :)

  2. This is one of my favorite series which you feature. There's something so charming about traditional crafting because of the history and craftsmanship behind it. The birch wood pieces Natalia sent you are beautiful!

  16. My heart sings when I see you experimenting with different media - it seems acrylics are new to your fashion illustration series, am I right? I am struck by the difference in the mood of acrylic illustrations vs. watercolors - bold and bright vs. soft and tender... Colors are just fantastic! Thank you so much for sending me your illustrations, dear Ivana, I will always treasure them! With my little presents, I wanted to make you feel appreciated, and I am glad if you do. <3

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

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…

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.
