Hi ! My name is Priya and I live in Thane, India with my loving husband and our seven year old son. I started crafting some years back but I came into this magical world of mixed media about a year and half back. I adore  making Scrapbook layouts, altered art and mixed media. I do not have a particular style and  like to experiment with different techniques and products.

 Co-Founder & Admin

I am Priyanka Srivastava. I am an Astronomer and I did my Masters in Space Sciences from the University of Pune. I worked as a Science and Astronomy Communicator and Educator as well as Content Developer in Delhi for about 4 years. Currently, I stay in Mumbai and I am a Senior Physics Teacher at an ICSE school here. My hobbies include reading (mostly English and Science fiction), dancing, visiting new places and adventure sports. Frankly, I love to try my hand at anything new and challenging.
Since childhood, I had an affinity towards craft and one of my favourite classes during my school days were Art and Craft and SUPW where I learned so many new forms of arts like glass painting, emboss painting, embroidery, sewing, crotchet etc. I have always liked to give my creations to my friends and family as a token of love since I was in school. A couple of years back I got to know about Quilling and I bought a small simple kit to try my hand on it. I instantly fell in love with it. A few of my friends saw some of my creations and expressed their desire to buy them. Their suggestions and a long duration of pondering over it resulted in "Priyaz Creations" coming into existence. I started with sharing and showcasing my love for quilling via my blog. But slowly from there, I met so many talented artists; I got motivated to learn some more paper crafts like decoupage, mixed media etc. and learned a great deal about these crafting techniques.
I am still learning and I have a long way to go on this amazing journey. I am honored to be a part of the team of Mixed Media Challenge and I am sure my learning will be immense with my amazing and awesome fellow team members. I hope I will be able to play any part in motivating someone out there to try their hands on this lovely art form of Mixed Media!

It’s Vidhi Jadeja from Mumbai, an artist by profession, an avid blogger, a doting daughter-in-law, a mother of two sweet little angels, a full-time homemaker, a compassionate person, a trained artist with post graduate in commerce and a Diploma in Fine Arts. All in one and not necessarily in the same order of priority!
The types of Art forms that interest me are Decoupage, Mix media art, Art Journal, Layouts and scrapbook making. I like all traditional Indian art forms.  With the passage of time, I realised my love and inclination towards vintage, rustic, wooden, masculine, distressed and ethnic art forms. No wonder then that most of my projects are created around the same theme.
Creativity for me is all about inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and still having fun!
