I am a stay-at-home mom to a beautiful girl and baby boy. You may see her photobomb some of my pics. I also have two unruly dogs and a husband who helps me pick up furniture pieces at all hours of the day and transports my pieces to their new homes. I work in my studio to create innovative designs and unconventional styles. I have a special fondness for antique furniture. I love to modernize it a bit with creative products to give it a fresh new look so that it lives another life and story instead of being neglected or hauled to the dump. I also love upcycling old objects and making them beautiful again.
I am a professional furniture artist propelled by the urge to create furniture for creative expression and practical use. Furniture and decor are what make our homes inhabited while reflecting our personal aesthetic. It can create an atmosphere of warmth and comfort or dynamism.

I believe in creating imaginative furniture that reflects passion, emotion, and feeling. Each piece is evocative and has its own unique

My Name is Nadya Drozdova and I am a mixed media and scrapbooking lover from Estonia. I have been doing my hobby for 5 and a half years. For the last four of them I have been creating and teaching workshops and classes. I would call my own style tender and romantic, but sometimes I am happy to create something grungy or steampunk. I like to play with paints and mediums and to make beautiful compositions on my projects using embellishments and Prima flowers. The most interesting thing for me is to share my skills and knowledge with others. This is why I do my classes and YouTube videos with all my love and passion.
The Secret Garden With Nadya Drozdova
My mixed media experience has shown me that very often it is most difficult for people to create projects with white background and not have it go into “dirt”. I would love to invite you to my online class where together we will create an elegant and romantic mixed media panel full of gorgeous texture and lovely elements using Prima marketing paints, pastes and embellishments. I will show you how to mix colors beautifully and create a neat flourish composition. After this class you will easily be able to: create cards and other projects, will be bold in making interesting and colorful backgrounds, and composition won`t be a challenge anymore. I will show you how to incorporate a photo to this project, so this panel will be a nice memory keeper as well. The size is13x30 cm (5 1/8” x 11 3/16”) .
All Prima marketing embellishments, paints and pastes are included in the kit.
