My Favourite Mixed Media YouTube Channels
There are so many great videographers out there, putting quality content onto YouTube. I thought that I would share a couple of my favourites, and hope that you will share yours with me. There is always more to discover!
One of my all time favourites is ‘Mike Deakin Art: MyCreative Journey’. I watch ALL of his videos from beginning to end. Mike is based in the UK and shares arts, crafts, tutorials, hints, tips and reviews. He creates art journal pages, canvases, ATCs, shadow boxes and more. I also belong to his Facebook group, Mike Deakin Art. I hope to participate in some of his personal ‘Mission Inspiration’ challenges this year.
Another channel that I go to a lot is ‘Mixed Media Jenn’. She explores art journaling and mixed media, sharing her process of creating art journal pages, artist trading cards, postcards and index cards. I go back to those videos again and again for tips and inspiration. She has almost 16,000 subscribers on YouTube! She is an editor of Cloth Paper Scissor magazine and contributes to other specialty publications also.
My list would not be complete without Cat Hand’s ‘MixedMedia Art: Just for the Fun of it!’ Her Mixed Media Morsels videos have introduced me to lots of new techniques. She uses a variety of mediums on art journal pages, index cards, canvases, etc. Her channel has over 15,000 subscribers! She has a Facebook group too, ‘Mixed Media Morsels’ where the goal is to be positive, share, and encourage each other, while keeping the main focus on Mixed Media Morsels.
Of course, there are so many more wonderful channels out there, far too many to share in one blog post. I’m sure you have some favourites too. Please share them with me in the comment section below. I look forward to checking them out!
