February Guest Designer - Saadia Nawaz

Hello CRafty Souls

Today at Mixed Media Academy we have the very talented Saadia Nawaz as our Guest Designer and she has created a beautiful project for this month's BIRTHDAY / CELEBRATION theme


BLOG     INSTAGRAM     PINTEREST

Hello Everyone
My name is Saadia Nawaz and I am a Mixed Media artist. I love creating Art journals and Mixed media canvases using different techniques and products. I am very happy doing a Guest post on Mixed Media Academy's Birthday and I wish the whole team a great creative year ahead.

About My project, as this month the theme was related to Celebration and there was freedom to create anything you wish, I decided to go for my favourite style and created a Mixed Media Canvas.
For this I took an  8 x 8 inches canvas.
Applied gesso all over, followed by modeling paste through a stencil to prepare my background. 
Applied acrylic paints with a brush and arranged and glued the embellishments. 
Finished it by adding few paint splatters. 
Hope you like my project and do not forget to enter the challenge this month...






Thank you Saadia for this amazing project.
Normally we don't accept cards and tags but this month it's ANYTHING MIXED MEDIA GOES...
And we have THREE awesome prizes to giveaway from our amazing sponsors, so what are you waiting for...
You can find this month's challenge on the top right side bar..

Thank you

February is my Birthday month too. I love my birthday 🎂. I love to wear new dress, cut a cake and buy some gifts for myself. I feel it's a special day for everyone as we came to this beautiful world on this day. We all should be Happy and do something good to mark this day like I love to plant a seed or a tree and take care of it, every year this day.
And I decided to make a gift for myself and here is a shadowbox frame with a lot of fussy cut and handmade flowers to celebrate our birthdays ❤️❤️❤️






Here's my take on the mood board...
A colourful Bouquet of flowers for our February challenge.

 Hello my all crafty buddies..
First of all wishing a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mixed Media Academy Challenge.
Birth is beginning. So every year birthday celebration is celebrate of your birth, your journey.
I make my project with picture of my furry baby to celebrate his birthday this month. I choose blue, pink and teal from moodboard. I have altered a small size mdf frame and add 2 shutters for turned the frame into open window. Make some foamiran flowers and how can I forgot to make a cake for him after all it's a birthday celebration.


I love flowers. I can't imagine that there would be flowers for the birthday. The colors from my tag matched the mood board colors.

 This month we are celebrating our first Birthday and we are giving away some amazing prizes as well. 
Here is our lovely Mood Board...  followed by gorgeous Inspirations from our Design Team...


Hello, creative souls! Margarita Shkludova is here with you!
This is the birth month of our blog! And I celebrate this joyful event with you. I have prepared a cute layout for your inspiration. The background on the layout is made using texture paste and Finnabair Prima paints. The lush composition is made up of ribbons and lace.

Join our birthday party and show us your beautiful birthday projects!

See you!


 So our creative blog is one year old! Happy Birthday!

For some people, Birthday is an occasion for a holiday, for others, it is a day of meditation, an assessment of past years, plans for the future.

I don’t know what lies ahead, but I’m sure that these are colorful, vivid emotions, a sea of inspiration and pleasant acquaintances!

Join us - to celebrate, reflect and share the joy with us!




Now I'm getting old and I only celebrate my little girl's birthday! And this photo inspire me for this page following the shiny and incredible February moodboard!!!!
Such a beautiful colors like children's colors!
Hope to inspire you!


 Birthdays are highlights for everyone, no matter what the age. Even if the child is just a year old, the birthday still means so much to his parents and all those who know the baby.
My layout depict a baby 1st birthday wishes given by her mother

Have a rocking day, and enjoy your cake and ice-cream, my beautiful boy

Happy 1 st birthday mixed media academy too🥳🥳🥳


When I saw the theme and colors, I thought I had to bake a cake! Ok, I usually don't bake, so I made something like a cake using media!
I couldn't resist using my daughter's photo from her annual session. It is full of joy and expression like our moodboard. And how will you celebrate with us?




 Happy first Birthday! We all had a great time, although you won’t remember it...1st Birthday! will always be special to the parents & relatives showering you with Blessings & so many presents...
But the memories will be captured & treasured for you to cherish all your life...



My work is inspired by Mixed Media Academy's Birthday. I used the colours from our mood board and inspired by the unicorn cupcake. I decided to make a rainbow coloured unicorn which is a beautiful Birthday gift for someone special. To make this 3D structure I used Powertex and liquidow and 3D easy flex. I realy love how it turned out. Show us what you create this month inspired by our moodboard...



It's time to rejoice at Mixed Media Academy....join us in celebrating Mixed Media Academy's First Birthday with the delightful birthday moodboard!


Birthday means celebration,

Cakes & Candles,

Smiles & Happiness

Wishes & Blessings.
Time to dream a new dream,
Time to think new thoughts,
Time to try new things.
Time to take a pause...
And, appreciate n be thankful..
