I don't know about anyone else, but sometimes I really start to feel like I'm running out of ideas for Soapmaking. How many different types of swirls can I do before everything starts to look the same? By the time I got to this soap, I was in one of such slumps.

I've been holding on to this oil for a while now unsure what to do with it. It's "Dirty Mimosa" from the Sage. I like using FO's from MMS when I'm looking for something very different from the popular scents that other soapers are carrying in their shops. If only I had a nose for real scent blending...sigh.
I play around a bit with it, but I'd LOVE to really, really understand how to create my own fragrance blends. Sorry, back to this soap :0)
As I was saying, I'm a bit in a design slump, so I decided to just go with an ITP swirls with more focus on the colors as opposed to the design. The soap balls were a last minute addition. I saw my last bar of Seaberry on the rack and decided, why not add some soap scrap balls again.
The orange soap shreds didn't have much "pop" to them, so I decided to dip them into some gold and orange mica. I really thought the base would discolor due to the vanilla in the fragrance description, but these have been curing for 2 weeks now and so far so good. Fingers crossed.
