Also the glazing medium *in love* ohh that could make awsome playtime on canvas or in my Art Journal with paints. They would never feel lonely here lol 🙂

  196. omgosh – i see the word liquitex and i jump for joy because i drool at Michael’s when i look at it (unfortunately i’m on a pension and can’t afford it but get ideas for hardware store purchases or home made – surely never as good!!!!) what i would do is go to the site and then google for a week all the things i could to see how to use the products above and find out what the range of uses are. i’d then see what my favorite artists are doing and then let it all sit within my artist brain. after a week or so, i’d come up with my own way of using the products. i can’t say exactly what i would create because i haven’t started that process with the new products that i’d actually have. this is how i approach each new product, because each one is sacred, not being able to afford much – i make sure to do lots of homework. actually, i’ve approached everything (as an adult) this way after being SO spontaneous as a younger person and wasting SO much on this earth!!! so i’d like to think i’d create something that would add to the art world, not re-create what has already been done. i’d like to believe i could use all the products in a new way and spread the word on the challenges i enter through my blog, but as i said, i can’t honestly say – having not entered my process yet. all i know is first and foremost what i would do is thank g-d for the opportunity to enter the process!!!! lovies, samara

  197. i am painting a full size door so …..

  198. I would want to learn to do some mixed media backgrounds- sort of spreading my wings! *Hugs*

  199. kathcrafter says:

    I would create background with the paint on a canvas , then build layers using the spray and glazing medium.

  200. Thanks for the great giveaway! I love Liquitex products! I’d use these for some fun mixed media canvases and to try out some of the new techniques I’ve learned from CJS.

  201. Wow, awesome giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win. If I won, I’d quickly put it to use implementing some CJS techniques in my art journal, and also to create backgrounds and embellies for my scrapbook pages and maybe transfer an image or two to canvas as inspiration and to remember what I’ve learned this month thanks to Nat and her amazing friends!!

  202. For sure, my art journal would be crazy painted!! All of Nat’s lessons would be incorporated into it with all of these wonderful paints!

  203. I would use it to try all the incredible techniques I’ve learned thanks to this Jump Start. So many things to experiment.
    Thanks for the great giveaway.

  204. I’d grab the pile of empty canvas I have and start painting!

  205. Diane Oster says:

    This would be an awesome prize to win. I would start playing with paint more, and paint everything in site.

  206. I have three blank canvases just waiting for this prize!

  207. Omg!! I would LOVE to win this!!
    I would be playing in my art journal FOR SURE!! ❤

  208. Das wäre das Richtige für mich. Wie schon erwähnt, probiere ich gerne vieles aus, und ich könnte neue Sachen testen. Ich liebe neue Sachen zu testen. Und dann könnte ich endlich mal die Technicken aus den Videos ausprobieren….
    Das wäre herrlich….
    LG Stephanie

  209. Colleen Fuerst says:

    Great giveaway! I would use the paints in my art journal, especially for making backgrounds, using the techniques Nathalie has been showing us. Thanks.

  210. Great prize to try out some of the techniques from the videos 🙂

  211. dianna clark says:

    I have a couple canvases at home just waiting for this great prize. I really like your products and can’t wait to get messy and try out the jumpstart techniques. Thank you so much.

  212. I have never done a canvas so I think I would like to try that 🙂

  213. t would use this kit to make a canvas layout for my MOTHER to have in her memory. And use some of the new stuff i have been shown on jump start.

  214. I would use the paint and spray paint with stencils in my journal and canvas.

  215. Marion McIntyre says:

    I would work on a mixed media canvas using many of the techniques shown in jump start 13.

  216. I might actually tackle a canvas with those nice big brushes! So far I usually make cards and I’m just getting in to art journalling … these would take me up another level in size and techniques!

  217. I would have to give mixed medium a go as I haven’t done any of that technique before 😦

  218. Can’t tell about the end results, but I’d start a large Canvas with the new aerosol paint I’ve been wanting to try!

  219. Rarely do i know what will result when i begin “playing” with new products. The results are bring smiles whatever they may be.

  220. good materials for trying something new!

  221. If I won this gift set, i would first prep a canvas with my Liquitex gesso, and then mix some of these awesome paints with molding paste. Using a stencil, i would create a colorful and texturized background on my canvas. I would then add some stamping, mixing glaze medium to my paint and do some painting and spaying to the mix. To finish, I would spay the varnish included in the gift set for a nice finish. And… Voilà!

  222. I think I would have to start an art journal with this set 🙂 Thanx!!

  223. Judith Noble says:

    I would paint wonderful backgrounds for collage!

  224. I would like to use them to create using the new techniques I have been learning here on jump start!

  225. Karen phanco says:

    I would like to work with the paints and practice some abstract portraits. Everything else gives the portraits extras!!

  226. I would try out some of the new stencils I have laying arround and fill some blank pages of my journal!! 🙂

  227. Barb Leffeler says:

    What a great starter kit. I would make an art journal with the techniques I saw on Jumpstart.

  228. I’d like to make a mixed media background, actually many of them 🙂

  229. With these I would make many many canvases:)

  230. I am new to all of these techniques. I would start an art journal and try all of the fabulous new things I have learned this month.

  231. If I receive this prize I’d definitely work on CANVAS with those heavy body acrylics and try some stencil layers with the spray 🙂

  232. Linda Brouwer says:

    I would practice some new techniques with the paints and broad brushes.

  233. Cheryl Sande says:

    I would probably try to make some home decor for my master suite. I can not find the right thing to hang over my bed.

  234. deb beschler says:

    Lovely paints! I would love to use them all to make a jumbo contemporary mixed media canvas for my sons room! Thanks so much for sharing.

  235. I would make lots of colourful backgrounds in my art journal & then try out some of the new techniques I have learnt from Jump Start 2013.

  236. Hmmm… First of all I woul try to make some really nice background for my artjournal pages. Yeah.. Definitly. I would start with this;)

  237. I really want to try out the transfer techniques. I would use the paint with my Gelli plate. The gloss medium would be great mixed with some color to make stained glass type windows with vellum.

  238. I would love to make a mixed media canvas for my daughter’s bedroom by combining these products and a bit of scrapbook paper.

  239. I would try to make a mixed media paint with a beautyfull princess face

  240. I would use the paint to try out Natalie’s techniques that she has been showing us making my first art journal. I would try the spray varnish for transfer techniques and the spray paint to add interest in different areas of the art journal.

  241. I would use these great products in my mixed media art journals! A girl can’t have enough stuff to get her hands dirty!!

  242. Probably I’d make some media on canvas (my first one)

  243. I made art journal following topics weekly “Comme un lundi” de Manuela Jamet.

  244. I would use this paint on a canvas.

  245. What an exciting giveaway! I would layer the spray paint using a stencil over a messy background made with heavy body acrylics. I would add some tissue tape, maybe some old paper and some personal journaling about my word for the year, “Kind”. I have no idea how to use the varnish, but would do a search to figure it out. Maybe I could add some interesting distressing to the background? I would do all this in my art journal, where I prefer to use heavy weight watercolor paper.

    Thank you so much for doing this series. I am overloaded with ideas, and find myself thinking of new things to try throughout the day when I supposed to be working and thinking of other things! 🙂

  246. I would expand my art journaling pieces if I were to win the products!
    Thanks for yourvery generous giveaway!

  247. Pam in New Jersey says:

    I would be able to transition from art journal pages to painting on canvas. I could be inspired by these products. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  248. Chris Aiton says:

    I would paint an abstract painting celebrating the joy of creation. thanks for such a great giveaway

  249. I would make a nice canvas!

  250. I use acrylics in my art journal – so I would paint a page in my journal. I’m not sure what would I do with the 2″ brush, though… LOL

  251. i would definitely make a mixed media canvas with it!

  252. Sharon van Beek says:

    I would definitely try these materials in my new art journal and I would try to make a canvas piece with them. Thanks for the chance to win this price, awesome!

  253. Lisa Campion says:

    I’ve been wanting to try heavy bodied acrylics on a huge canvas for a long time. Something wild, colourful & abstract. Thanks for the inspiration!

  254. Hannie Hokke says:

    I made art journals from all the kids in my class. Now I have to make a cover for thesejournals. This gift would be a great start!

  255. Oh, I couldn’t say what the final result would be, but as soon as I saw the brushes, I thought oh, wow, that would make a perfect background and perfect long splashes of paint on a canvas… I am seeing a large blank canvas… and I think of Jackson Pollock… so something that would humbly try to use his technique actually.

  256. I would probably create something that I didn’t plan on forhand. I would just start to play with all of it, and see what happened!

  257. Christy Sloan says:

    I have been wanting to do some canvas art and this would be a great start.

  258. I would create an inspirational canvas using rigid wrap and other multi textured elements.

  259. Oh, I have lots and lots of ideas should I win this awesome set. It would be backgrounds for my cards, covers for mini books and canvases.

  260. i would create a canvas to give to my husband for our anniversary which is coming up soon

  261. I have never tried painting on canvas. If I should win, I would buy one right away and give it a try! Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  262. mixed media projects, now that I am brave enough to do some on canvas as gifts for others, would be much fun with these supplies. I don’t own any heavy body acrylics yet.

  263. Lyn Firth says:

    I am an art journaller, so I would use the prize on my pages.I have seen many of the jump start presenters using Liquitex, and would like to give it a try! I suspect it would make the brand that I can easily buy locally look not so good!

  264. Rhonda Strickland says:

    I would create something for my home on canvas. What a great prize!

  265. I’d definitely do a mixed media canvas. Love their products!

  266. I would use the products to make background master sheets. Have always wanted to try glazes.

  267. i will use it for creating card with texture…and probably use it for create some ornements too…it could be so fun to win it and use it also for my art journal…thanks for that…

  268. I would use them on everything!! Fantastic giveaway.

  269. Janet Firth says:

    fantastic gift! Well I love to make multi medium pieces and my art journal and wow would this be amazing to have this gift pack to create with!

  270. Ann-Marie Waite says:

    Oh my gosh! I would mix them up on a canvas with my liquitex inks and gesso and have fun!

  271. What a wonderful prize 🙂 I have been thinking about trying more liquitex products as I only have a few so far. I am really keen to try the professional spray varnish as I am always looking for a better sealant to use over my silk dyes. The glazing medium and the heavy body paints would be luscious with those lovely wide brushes, the short handled brush is intriguing and I am thinking it would be perfect in my travelling art kit. Some one will be very lucky winning this great prize so good luck to everyone.

  272. I’m fascinated with abstracts and I think that I would start that genre of painting were I to win – thanks for the chance!!

  273. These big brushes just ask for a canvas :)Think the other products wouldn’t mind the canvas either. The heavy body paint would be good for adding texture to the canvas, so I think I would use templates or pressing some things in the paint to create a texture. The varnish would be great for adding a glossy seal to the covers of my journals (when decorated), but I would use them to add a finish to objects I would make from (air drying) clay. I’m not sure what the glazing medium is, but I will find out 🙂

    xx Monica

  274. Jodie Jarnevic says:

    I would use them on my new Art journal and lots of canvases, looooove making canvases 🙂

  275. Ruth Satterlee says:

    If I should be so lucky to win, I would spend days happily painting in my art journals experimenting away. Can’t wait to try the new spray paint!

  276. Using the paints on canvas utilizing my stencils. I have been wanting to go bigger and this amount of paint would allow me to do it…bigger brushes too. Never used the spray varnish and am interested in trying, but I use Liquitex acrylic paints!

  277. Thank you Liquitex for participating in this fabulous giveaway. You make some of my favorite acrylic products. The Slow-Dri Blending medium is so silky smooth to use. I’d mix it with the paints to create mixed media fabric art.

  278. what an awesome giveaway! I would mess about and come up with new designs for book covers

  279. I would make journal pages and hope for a good one! Those brushes look awesome!

  280. Roxane Apple says:

    Awesome set to start expanding and practicing so many if the techniques that spare new to me from Creative Jump Start! Thanks for the opportunity!

  281. If I won this I would create a mixed media piece to go on my office wall honoring my mother, who passed away just before Christmas.

  282. This would be great to use in the art journal that I want to start! All the videos/tutorials have been fabulous so far…and I can’t wait to see more.

  283. Debby Podgorski says:

    It would be fun to create a canvas using the paints and build up texture like in Nat’s video. Then it would be fun to rubber stamp into the paint to create another background texture.

  284. What a wonderful give away! I would love to work with this on my layouts. Make texture with the paint and bubblewraing or stamps.

  285. Janelle Rourke says:

    Oh I could finally try some things that I don’t have the supplies for, and no where close to get! I am dabbling in art journals, I can see so many canvas projects, new directions to take. Oh the possibilities if I won! Thanks so much for the chance!!!

  286. I just watched Natalie’s jump start 5 using the heavy body acrylics. I have tons of liquitex paints but no heavy body. that would be my first place to start.

  287. I would use it to work on a larger painting on a canvas board… and branch out from my art journal a little. Thanks!

  288. Thank you for the chance to win. I would love to use the paints on my scrapbook layouts.

  289. Oh this would be a very nice way to get to know Liquitex products! I think I’d do the canvas that is hanging in the back of my head for quite some time now. Than some bookcovers and a looooooooooot of mixed media projects!

  290. I would like to make some scrapbooking canvases or reinvent a not so pretty dresser drawer unit. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity Liquitex!

  291. What an awesome giveaway – new supplies are always such a treat to work with. Loving your range.

  292. This is a very nice prize that i would use on my scrapbook project. I love to use paint with stencil! I would use it in my journal to, to make back ground. I love to create texture with gesso and then highlight it with paint…sky is the limit!

  293. So many possibilities! I would probably use this set in creating a canvas with my son’s 7th grade class. We usually do a mixed media canvas as an art auction. The students love working with different mediums and really love the heavy bodied acrylics.

  294. Dara Lynn says:

    Come to Momma!!!! The sky is the limit with these fab Liquitex products!

  295. This would be a awesome win – I would definitely use on scrapbook pages as well as other craft projects. That you for the chance to win.

  296. Great prize pack! I would probably use it to work in my over-sized art journal. Or maybe a mixed media canvas!

  297. Oh wow what a fab giveaway! I think I would try my hand at a large mixed media canvas – I’ve always created small, been too timid to try anything large – but with all this fun stuff, I’d give it a shot!

  298. angiesuez says:

    would be so cool to have the artist grade paint instead of the basics. And spray paint – oh the stenciling I could do!

  299. Debbie Pettit says:

    Definitely art journal pages. If I won this I would finally take the leap to working on canvas and make a painting! I’m dying to try the spray paint with stencils.

  300. Tonya Love says:

    If I were to win I would create a very large painting for my new craft room!

  301. A little paint goes a long way so I would use these for book covers and pages for handmade journals as well as working on my store bought visual journals.

  302. I could make a beatiful mess with that set!

  303. I would either create a page in my journal or give a try on canvas. Love Liquitex and have been eanting to try the spray paint.

  304. Cindy from Holland says:

    If I would win this set of goodies, I would use it in my art journal and maybe make a canvas. I still have one lying around somewhere.

  305. I just love paint and so would use it in my journals, canvases, altered books everything. If you stand still long enough in my craft room you get painted!!

  306. I love Liquitex paints. I’d use them to paint a textile cover for my art journal first and then put them to good use in the journal itself.

  316. tamariskt says:

    I would finally make a start on an art journal using techniques I have learned from all of the talented artists featured in the creative jump start summit 🙂

  317. Would it be blame to say ‘I have no idea’? I don’t have anything like this in my craft supplies and I have only been introduced to these techniques through cjs, but would be very excited to win. Most likely I will be using them as part of my son’s ‘first year’ scrapbook!

  318. Si j’ai la chance de gagner, je me lance dans un Canvas de taille plus importante que ce que je fais d’habitude !
