Element Experimentation: Cherry Blossom

A microscale cherry blossom. The street outside our house is lined with these, so every Spring we get to enjoy an overdose of beautiful white flowers 🙂 A rather simple build as Autumn break is upon us, and lego time is limited 😉 From what I’ve seen 3742c01 – Plant Flower Small, 4 on Sprue…

Element Experimentation: Winter Landscape

As the fireworks of autumn fizzles out the majestic serenity of the winter wonderland promptly replaces it. But actually, there’s about two months’ worth of cold, grey and dreary darkness in between, but let’s skip that this year 🙂 Just like my autumn build this is all about the trees, made from 13564 – Cattle…

Element Experimentation: Autumn Foliage

There are few things that can compare to the dazzling show of vivid colors that is the autumn foliage. This is definitely the most detailed 8×8 build I’ve ever made. The star of the show here is the 13564 – Cattle Horn – Long in Reddish Brown. When I ordered it I knew I wanted…

Rounded Office Building

This was sort of an exercise in using organic shapes for a building. Though complicated, the concave surfaces and the three pronged shape were manageable. Finishing up the top by fitting a roof was a whole different matter though, and I’m not actually very happy with how it turned out. Ok, but not great. Still,…

Rural Landscape

Recently, Rebrick hosted a contest called ‘Help Decorate the LEGO House!’ – a contest where the prize was, among other things, to have your build displayed at LEGO House for 1 year! The contest had two themes: minifigures and nature. Seeing as I love building nature, this contest felt like a pretty good fit and…
