What kind of projects will I find?

We describe our projects as ‘mixed media’ – in that we encourage you to explore, use and develop your skills with a wide range of art and craft materials. Mixed media simply means using multiple kinds of media in your projects. This might be working over watercolour paint with pencil and pastel. It might be using stencils, mark making tools or stamps alongside traditional art materials. It could be incorporating texture mediums, fabric, or found objects into a piece. It’s about being creative and experimental with a range of art and craft supplies. You’ll find a very wide range of project types and styles at Mixed Up, so there’s something for every taste.

What is meant by exclusive content?

Exclusive means Mixed Up has the exclusive licence from the designer to use the tutorials we features. Although you may see our designers sharing images of their makes for the purposes of promotion or marketing, you won’t find the tutorial instructions or video anywhere other than on one of the Mixed Up platforms. Not all of our content is exclusive, but the vast majority is.

Are the products available internationally?

Yes, all of our digital products are available all over the world but we are only able to offer pricing in UK pounds. At checkout, PayPal will automatically convert the fee to your currency based on the current exchange rate. Our credit/debit card system Stripe also accepts payment in most currencies. This is a handy website where you can get an approximate calculation of our prices in your currency: www.xe.com/currencyconverter/ (NB this is only a guide – exact prices will be dictated by exchange rates set by our payment partners PayPal and Stripe.)

How can I pay?

We have two payment methods available: you can either checkout with PayPal or you can use Stripe (which allows payment with a debit or credit card). Both checkout options can accept payment in a wide range of currencies. Both are well-respected, secure checkout providers. Mixed Up does not store any payment information.
