Why can't I leave it alone?

I made another attempt this morning and got this (first picture). I thought that I should leave it like that but then, some demon inside me made me continue and I got this (second picture).
I am so annoyed with myself! Why couldn't I leave it alone?

I rather like the gold nframe, but I also have a lovely habit of over working anything artistic that I do. There is always that temptation to add one little something else. Then I usually turn what was actually quite nice into an ugly mess.

Sonya, your tools are so perfectly shaped, mine are all a bit tortured looking. I might not be actually making this soap, this one is stumping me out of the gate.

N-Frame, that is a really, really nice soap. I wish I had done it, and then I would just stop and quit thinking about it.

I guess I'm getting somewhere. I finally got a pattern I like...then promptly ruined it by trying to do a mica drip (which you can kind of see in the corner) ended up throwing in the flag on this and swirling the top. I think I'll have time for one more go of it before the cutoff date.
Please pardon the poor picture quality , it was rather late.

And this is the cut soap. Another thing I cannot do and wait until the soap is hard enough. It was still too soft this morning - as a result the diagonal lines flattened when I unmoulded it. I'll never learn!

For the record I HATE my camera on my HTC one m7. Its awful and I can't get a high pixel crisp shot for any soapy projects I do! I'm due to upgrade and am waiting for a deal to drop the price on a Samsung. So my pics are up, blur and all. So frustrating!

Can I still sign up and try? I wanted to do earlier, but I wasn't high enough on the posting requirement, but noticed today that I have surpassed that 50 mark.

I still need to research the faster tracing oils--I have a variety to work with but have fallen into the lard/tallow recently, which I understand as slow... I don't do palm either, (just a don't have--didn't buy situation).

I was gonna try alone anyways, but I always need accountability to force myself into getting things done that are new...so I am asking to join.

Since voting hasn't started, I don't see a reason why you can't enter your soap! I haven't even made mine yet... I don't think it would be fair to bar you from entering. However, becasue this is Saponistas challenge, I think it would be best if she had the final weigh in on that.

Tviv, I thought of doing exactly that for mine (the colors, not the squares!)
