I never quite know what I’ll end up building when I sit down at my Lego table. Sometimes I have an idea in my head and can instantly start molding the beginning of my project. Other times, I stare at my pieces blankly, without a spec of inspiration to be found. It can be frustrating at times, but when I can’t think of anything to build, I go back to the basics, and try experimenting with different building techniques.
In this build, I tried to work on a different stone pattern to create a really textured pathway. Detail is important, especially in small builds, and the more you can add the better (without going overboard that is). At times I’ll get carried away, and try and add too much detail to a build, and then it just ends up looking messy. There’s a fine line between simple and boring, but also between detailed and crowded. Finding a happy medium is always best, in my opinion.
When you experiment with different building techniques, you’ll find ones you like, and others that you don’t. The more you learn, the more you can apply to your future projects, and the better they’ll become! Lego has limitless possibilities with what you can create, and how you create it. Everyone has a different building style, whats yours?
If you have any questions or comments about this build, I’d love to hear from you! Leave a comment below and I’ll be more than happy to get back to you!
