A painting, an outfit and a DIY project (dark blue) / Slika, odjevna kombinacija i napravi sam projekt (modra)


I love how this painting turned out. The medium is acrylic on cardboard. Speaking of acrylic, I have done quite a few DIY projects using this kind of paints recently. In this post, you'll see one of those projects.  I painted over a pair of old boots with a dark blue acrylic paints. The same paint I used to paint the hair on this illustration. Long story short, my old boots are now dark blue. DIY projects are always fun. For me they are often more about practicing our creativity then about the end result. Was it really sensible to use acrylic paints on low quality shoewear? No, it wasn't. In some cases (albeit not in this one, these boots were sadly overpaid ) the paints themselves cost more than the shoes. However, the fun element has its value and so does the opportunity to practice our creativity. Sometimes that is what we need. As Tijana said, sometimes we can learn from baby pandas (you can see what she meant by there here).

Sviđa mi se kako je ova slika ispala. Medij je akril na kartonu. Kad smo već kod akrila, u zadnje vrijeme sam se dosta  bavila s napravi sam projektima koristeći ovu vrstu boja. U ovoj objavi, vidjet ćete jedan od tih projekata. Obojila sam par starih čizama s modrom akrilnom bojom. Istom bojom koju sam koristila da bi naslikala kosu na ovoj ilustraciji zapravo. Ukratko, moje stare čizme su sada modre. Napravi sam projekti su uvijek zabavni. Kod mene se oni često više svode na vježbanje kreativnosti nego na krajni rezultat. Je li stvarno bilo razumno koristi akrilne boje na obući niske kvalitete? Ne, nije. U nekim slučajevima (ne i u ovom, ove čizme su nažalost preplaćene) akrilne boje koštaju više od same obuće. No, element zabave ima svoju težinu, kao i prilika da vježbamo svoju kreativnost. Ponekad je to sve što trebamo. Kao što je Tijana rekla, ponekad možemo učiti od bebica pandica (vidjet ćete što je to točno mislila s time ovdje).

    your painting is wonderful - full of charisma! And I am happy that you painted your shoes, too. In my new post you can also see two pairs of boots that I painted with acrylic colours - the red ones and the blue ones.

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…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
