Swirlydoos NSD Challenge!

Right now the Swirlydoos design team is hosting a bunch of fantastic challenges in honour of National Scrapbook Day (but you have a week to complete them). Great fun and prizes to be won!

Visit the Swirlydoos Forum to see all of the challenges.
For my Pearl and Lace Flower tutorial see previous post.

1. You will need to create a flower using my Pearl and Lace Flower tutorial (in the previous post).

2. Use your handmade flower(s) on any project of your choice. If you would like to make an altered mason jar (as I am doing), you will need a clean glass jar, paint (I used white Martha Stewart multi-surface paint because it stays well on glass without the expense of glass paint - and it can even be hand-washed after curing), plus any other embellishments of your choice.

3. Post your project in my thread on the Swirlydoos forum at: http://www.swirlydoos.com/sd_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?207305

Here is a great recipe idea to fill the jar with...
(makes a wonderful mother's day or teacher gift)

(adapted from a www.freutcake.com recipe)

- 2 cups coarse salt or sea salt
- 1/2 cup almond or coconut oil
- 2 tsp lemon zest (grated lemon peel)
- 10 drops of peppermint essential oil (aromatherapy)
- 2-3 drops of yellow food colouring
*Mix well and store it in the fridge. Enjoy!

There will be special prizes for the challenges and also great promotions later on today in the online store.
