Dobrodošli! (Welcome!)

Odlučila sam staviti i ovaj blog u funkciju, iz poštovanja prema svim posjetiteljima koji ne mogu ostavljati komentare na matičnom blogu . Nadam se da ću imati dovoljno vremena za dvostruko uređivanje.

I decided to put this blog to function, out of respect to all the visitors who can not leave comments on the blog home. I hope to have enough time for double editing.

Proljeće u Maloj Veneciji - Spring in the Little Venice

Nakon prvog izazova  u kvilanju slova, (moj  CreActiviy nagrađen na Priteshinom blogu) dugo nisam pokušavala slično. Ovaj projekt je trajao nekoliko dana i bio je dosta mukotrpan, a evo i zašto:
Logo koji sam imala bio je dosta malen, a takav font slova nemam u računalu. Dakle, trebalo je natpis što vjernije uvećati. Krenula sam sa iscrtavanjem na crvenom papiru, izrezala slova i... bila su prevelika za podlogu koju sam imala! Tko mi je kriv kad nisam mjerila. Drugi pokušaj: sve ispočetka, malo umanjeno od prvotnog. Mjere odgovaraju. Izrezujem slova. Na karton (valoviti) ljepim komad ravnog kartona (hamera), zaljepim slova i sve ostavim preko noći pod težom kutijom. Sljedeći dan - katastrofa! Umjesto da se sve skupa lijepo izravna i sljepi, rezultat je iskrivljeni papir pun "mjehura"! Još jedan promašaj. Idem ispočetka i nadam se onome: treća - sreća! Ovaj put odlučim izbjeći mukotrpno izrezivanje slova. Crtam ih na bijelom papiru koji će odmah biti i podloga i obojim ih u crveno. Zaljepim sve na ravni 2mm karton i ostavim preko noći. Rezultat zadovoljavajući. Dakle, konačno sam mogla započeti sa izradom.

After the first challenge in making the letters (my CreActiviy rewarded Pritesh blog) I have not done something similar. This project lasted for several days and was quite arduous, and here's why:

Logo that I had was quite small, and such a font I have not on my PC. So, I'm supposed to draw and magnify it more accurately. I started drawing on red paper, cut out letters ... were too large for the surface that I had! Who is to blame when I did not measure? Second attempt: everything from scratch, a little less than the first time. Appropriate measures. Cuts letters. On the cardboard (corrugated), glue a piece of flat cardboard (poster board), glue the letters and leave everything overnight under heavier case. The next day - a disaster! Instead of being all together nicely aligned, the result is a distorted paper full of "bubbles"! Another failure. I go over and I hope things: third -  luck! This time I decided to avoid the painstakingly cutting letters. I draw them on a white paper that will be the base and paint them red. Glue everything on 2mm cardboard and leave overnight. The result is satisfactory.
So, finally I could start working.


O čemu je riječ?
Udruga Mašlek (čiji sam član) povremeno uređuje neke izloge u gradu. Među njima je i izlog slastičarne Mala Venecija u Martićevoj ulici u Zagrebu. S obzirom da su bili zadovoljni našim trudom u vrijeme Božića, poželjeli su dalju suradnju. Dakle, proljeće dolazi, a i Uskrs je blizu, pa se nadam da ćemo se na vrijeme angažirati i ispuniti njihov izlog bojama proljeća! Ovaj projekt će biti moj mali doprinos. Nazovimo ga "Proljeće u Maloj Veneciji" 


What is it?

Mašlek Association (creative association of which I am a member) occasionally edited some shop windows in the city. Among them is a showcase of the patisserie called Little Venice in Martićeva street in Zagreb. Given that they were pleased with our effort at Christmas time, they wanted to further cooperation. So, spring is coming, and Easter is near, so I hope that we will be on time to hire and fill their showcase with the colors of spring! This project will be my small contribution. Let's call it "Spring in the Little Venice"

  2. I saw the picture of your project on Facebook and I had to come here to see more of it!

    The quillography looks great, I am impressed by how beautiful and neat the letters are! I like all the swirls and the colors you chose, they go great together!

    The more hard work, the better the results, you know how it is :) I am glad your project turned out so wonderful in the end. And think about it: you know now what went wrong, so you won't make the same mistakes again.

    Hugs!

    1. I'm glad that you looked at the details. Yes, the trip was arduous, but as you say, now I know. One learns from mistakes!The truth is that I am not completely satisfied. I see some mistakes. My husband says that I'm too self-critical. But it is a way to further advance, right? :)

    2. I am exactly the same, never 100% satisfied with my projects! But that's a good thing because like this you always try to improve yourself :)

      Have a great weekend, Gordana!
