Mixed Media Mania II: Fall Edition - Change Takes Courage Canvas

We are so excited to be back with another Mixed Media Mania YouTube hop! Our Spring debut hop was so incredibly successful and your comments asking us to do so definitely inspired us to bring it back. We are looking forward to these hops every Spring and Fall for your pleasure.  I hope you will enjoy this one just as much, if not more than our last one! Honestly, this was just a little idea that grew into so much more than I ever imagined. The support from the art community from new artists joining the hop to our ever growing list of sponsors is just so humbling. It is a blessing to be able coordinate (although I am learning more and more about myself as a "coordinator" haha) these for you.

As always, we don't have a theme. We want our artists to create from a place that brings them pure joy because I feel like that is when you get the most inspiration from someone. And that is exactly what I've done with my project for you today. All I knew is that I wanted to use these colors and then I dug into my stash to find as much product I already own from our amazing list of sponsors that you will see like Ranger Ink, DecoArt Media,  ThermowebMixed Media Place, Shawn Petite and more along with some new goodies from a new company that is joining us this time. Red Lead Paperworks was incredibly generous in sending some of us product to use in our projects today and I definitely encourage you to check them out! It's like a candy store for Mixed Media Artists! 

My canvas is full of texture, color, texture and more color! This is a YouTube hop so to be eligible for the giveaways, please head on over to my YouTube Channel Inky Fairy Designs now to start the watching and leaving those comments along the way.

July Art Journaling YouTube Hop - Fear Doesn't Belong Here

Hi everyone! Welcome to another YouTube hop devoted to Art Journaling with an incredible line up of artists. I'm thrilled to be participating again. It's been a crazy couple of months and I MISS my devoted art time and filming. I am so grateful for Keren Tamir organizing this second hop and inviting me back to participate! This time we are all answering the question "What does art journaling meant to you?"

Visit my video to hear my full answer but it really is no secret! Art journaling grounds me, it quiets the chaos in my mind, soothes anxiety, lifts depression and so much more. Art truly is, for me, therapy! 

Here is a full list of supplies used (mostly in order of their appearance in the video.) I have started including affiliate links for my videos here. Using the links when you see something you like helps me with a teeny tiny kickback directly from the company without changing the price for you at all. It's a small way for you to support my art and my channel. Thank you so much!

And some close ups so you can see all the wonderful texture. 

Here is a list of our amazing sponsors! Be sure to like, comment and subscribe to every video in the hop because prizes are hidden along the way and we don't know where! You can find a full playlist of all the videos in the hop HERE.
You would think my paint colors were influenced by my latest manicure but no, I just really love those soft, pastel blues and purples! In case you are wondering though, my nails are courtesy of Color Street (I'm in an independent stylist) and they are amazing! I just had to share how great they look after a couple art journaling sessions and a week's wear. For more info, visit!

Here is a list of supplies used (mostly in order of their appearance in the video). The only supply I wasn't able to link  to was the Brea Reese Paint Writer in Prussian Blue. I have started including affiliate links for my videos here. Using the links when you see something you like helps me with a teeny tiny kickback directly from the company without changing the price for you at all. It's a small way for you to support my art and my channel. Thank you so much!
