Will You be my Flower Girl?

I’ve been eager to create watercolor cards for some time now, and finally decided to do it! “Will You be my Flower Girl” cards painted with watercolors seemed like a good place to start!

You can find these cards and other fun colorful stuff in my Etsy shopflower girl wedding card, wedding card, watercolor illustrationI stated with 2 options: girl in a blue dress and girl in a beautiful pink dress.

All I Need Today is Coffee and Bikini

But first I wanted to ask you something… These past few years I loved sharing my projects and behind the scene photos here on my blog and Instagram. But I keep asking myself if people still read blogs? Do you guys read blogs and if the answer is NO, what is your favorite platform??? Feels like with all the social media explosion we get overwhelmed with so much information and blogs are not as popular as before. I’m not saying good buy to my blog, because I really love this little creative corner- the idea of creating new posts always pushes me to experiment and share my little steps with you guys, so I’m going to continue adding new fun content here and I also plan something new!

Last month I published my first Skilshare class and I surprisingly loved creating video content so my next step is YouTube, so we’ll see how it goes. Wish me luck:)

How to Create Beautiful Fashion Illustrations

Happy Monday loves! Every day I get lot’s of Instagram DMs with questions about fashion illustration tips and today I have really amazing news that will brighten up your day!

I finally filmed my first Skillshare class after years and years of being too scared to try. I’ve been always terrified of being judged that I’m a self taught artist and don’t have a diploma from a  fancy school or my strong accent will make people laugh. But this year is all about challenging myself. A few weeks ago I was going to do a live Insta video and was sooooo nervous! My hands were shaking, I couldn’t remember what I wanted to say but I pressed the button “GO LIVE” and it was fine….I survived!:)  Nobody threw rotten tomatoes in my screen, some people even told me later that they loved it and asked for more videos:)))  I realized that if I inspire to draw or paint at least one person- it all worth it! And I did it! In my class you will learn the basics of fashion illustration, I’ll show you step by step how to draw a fashion figure, create dynamic and interesting poses and we’ll be learning how to use watercolors along the way.

If you never heard of Skillshare, you should definitely check it out right now!! Skillshare is an online learning community for creators. The classes are video based and you can do them entirely at your own pace.

Nursery Art

A few weeks ago I made these cute little ballerinas for my friends and fell in love with the process: playing with gorgeous tulle, painting on canvas and then wrapping it up in pretty packaging was like going back to my childhood when I loved making dolls and creating fun outfits for them. I’ve started with only 3 tulle options and today I’m excited about new designs which look magical!! You can soon choose from different shades of pink with cute heart shape design and polka dots, gray and peachy colors (find my ballerinas on Etsy)! So excited!!!  Here is a little sneak peek:)
