Lovelies for Sugar&Spice

I have to admit, I love enamel mugs and these one I've created for a special client who has a gorgeous cafe/restaurant in Doha are so special!











I am really in love with them, they look so lovely and sweet and they are going to be a perfect addition to that gorgeous cafe. So happy and honored I had a chance to design them :D

End of the school and farewell gift

Latest project I was working on for my dear friend in Doha were posters digitally created in Photoshop. They were gifts for teachers and best friends. It was something that I was doing for the first time, but as I am doing a 100 days challenge making surface patterns digitally, it was really enjoyable project.

Here they are:






Looking forward to my next project :D and waiting for your ideas!

Group painting and a group exhibition

Last week, my art group had a wonderful idea to meet and paint a big painting together. On the day, the weather was so beautiful, sunny and warm, maybe even too warm and we decided to paint outside. More than ten of us got together and we found a nice spot near Wawel castle under the umbrella of one of the cafe. We painted on the floor a big painting, 1x1,2m big. The painting was finished in about 3 hours and we decided to donate the painting to the IWAK (International Women's Association of Krakow) for the next Christmas Charity Auction.

Here is a glimpse how it was.









On 2nd and 3rd there was an art festival in Osijek, Croatia called ReArt. During the festival, there was many things happening and one of them was an illustrations exhibition called Never ending story. I participated in this group exhibition with one of my illustration "Girl in a field of daisies" and my younger sister, little nephew and niece went to see the exhibition since I was not in Croatia <3.

Done is better than perfect

Hi my dear friend!
My new resolution is "Done i better than perfect" and yesterday was the 50th of 100 days challenge I am doing with other artists around the globe. Each of us is doing their own thing every day for 100 days and I've decided to make surface pattern designs. It is very hard to make one each day but with the new resolution "Done is better than perfect" it works just fine ;)


You can see all of them on my Instagram account or on my Facebook Page
Last week I was participating in a small bazaar which I organized for the International Women's Association of Krakow. It happened during our usual coffee morning with 10 creative members doing arts and crafts. It was charitable event and 10% of each sale went to the association's charity fond. 
Here are few photos ;)

Patterns

Hi my dear friend,

It's been a month since I joined the Make Art That Sells students and alumni in a challenge of making something every day for 100 days. I've decided to make patterns in different techniques. So far I am doing them digitally because it is much faster when you need to make one each day. They are just a quick drawing and than translated and finished in photoshop. I also use Adobe capture to make a new pattern from the existing in just a second.

Here are some of them














I really hope I will manage to get it to the ned of 100 days without skipping a day.

Sending you a smile with love,
Dominika

Personalized children's book

Hi my friend,

it has been awhile since my last post. I have been working on my new website, it is almost done and I will launch it really soon but until than this blog will still be active.

These past few months were very hectic, emotional and busy. We moved to a new apartment this year because of the burglary in our old apartment we were renting. Some of my precious things I got from both of my late grandmothers were stolen which makes me very sad. But life goes on and we need to focus on positive things.

After all those things were over I started working on a great project for a girl who has lived in 5 different counties. I painted 6 small paintings for her, each presenting one city she had lived in. Than I asked her mom to write stories about each city and I designed her a small book.










I also made few toys and a cloud pillow with her favorite pets for her.
