Work with us


At Mixed Up we have a totally open submissions policy – anyone, anywhere in the world is welcome to make a submission to us. Whether you are an established artist or you’ve never been published before, we’d love to hear from you. We are looking for inspirational, high quality mixed media projects in all genres. Our product is aimed at artists of all levels of experience, so anything mixed media goes!

Initially, please send us three samples of your best work and a link to somewhere online we can see your work (blog, Instagram feed, Facebook page). Alternatively, firm project ideas with sample pics are even better!

Our projects are step-by-step or video tutorials in the main but we also feature ‘how tos’, interviews, and articles on specific areas of crafting (for example we’ve had pieces on mail art and faith journalling). We do require new work that’s exclusively licensed to us.

Industry pARTners

Our philosophy at Mixed Up is to work alongside the arts and crafts industry to support fellow businesses in the sector.

Our pARTners are businesses who we work with on a scheduled programme of articles, advertising, reader offers and social media sharing over a period of 6-12 months. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship, where we work to actively promote one another and the services we offer. There is NO CHARGE to partnering with us.

We are also looking for partners for our downloadables content and there’s of course the option for businesses to work with us on a one-off or more occasional basis.

Our purpose in forming partnerships is to be just that – partners. Mixed Up does not have a sales department and we guarantee no sales pitches. Just honest, straightforward information.

If you’d like to work with us we’d love to hear from you. Contact Katy (Editor) on for more details.
