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 ๐Ÿ™‚ A rather simple build as Autumn break is upon us, and lego time is limited ๐Ÿ˜‰ From what I’ve seen 3742c01 – Plant Flower Small, 4 on Sprue…

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…

Element Experimentation: Island

A palm tree on a tropical island. A repeat of the bright green barb! 16770 – Barb / Claw / Horn – Large with Clip in Bright Green This is basically utilising the same technique as my previous barb tree, but reduced to two layers which makes a nice palm tree. Tropical island – bonus…

Element Experimentation: Snow-covered Spruce

Spruce Tutorial

Hello everyone! This is a tutorial showing how to build a spruce with lego utilising weaving of leaf elements to get an organic, natural looking effect. I came up with this design while building a nature build for a competition, and have since had quite a few requests for a tutorial on this technique. So…

Lush Landscape

For my last entry to Rebrick’s ‘Help Decorate the LEGO House!’ contest I wanted to make a very lush landscape in minifig scale. I pretty recently finished my Abandoned Lot and I wanted to use the same style for this build, but again limited to the size constraints of the contest. I also wanted to…

Winter Landscape

Though I love building nature, I haven’t built much involving snow. As my second entry to Rebrick’s ‘Help Decorate the LEGO House!’ contest I decided to remedy that ๐Ÿ™‚ When I build nature landscapes, I strive to make things look organic, which usually means adding a lot of texture and small details. However, when it…

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…
