So after I purchased all those goodies, what do I make? Something with what I've had on hand for a while of course. My sister had given me a lovely 3D dragonfly mould when I first got her stash of soaping supplies, and I never tried it out. Don't ask me why, laziness mostly. Again, I had in mind how I wanted it to look but how it turns out is not quite the same.
One thing I knew for sure is I didn't want the whole thing the same colour, I wanted a pretty sky blue background to make it spring like. The dragonfly, by rights, should be more greenish, but being a purple gal, I went that route instead. The lighting was starting to go when I was scraping off the excess yellow for the stars and moon, and the moon didn't want to come out completely so let's just pretend some clouds are covering part of it, okay?
For some reason, they cornflower blue turned more green than blue, maybe something I had in the soap? For whatever reason, the background turned more greenish than blue, but it still smells nicely of Crafter's Choice Raspberry Kisses. I was going to try Silvia's technique of mixing a floral with a fruit scent, but I got…squirrel! But there's always next time right?
