Get Your Inspiration and Perspiration Going!

March 9th, 2009

summerhouseAre you struggling to come up with an idea for your entry into this years Creative Competition? If so, we’ve got a few pointers to help you along.

  1. Pick an era, topic or theme – this will help to narrow down your choices and get you thinking about what the elements are that you’ll need to recreate your selection.
  2. Research your era, topic or theme on the internet, use google images to bring up pictures of what you are looking for, read through some books on the subject and you’ll soon know if it’s what you really want to do.
  3. Identify any tools or products you need to complete your vision.
  4. Plan how long it’s all going to take you! Break it down into chunks, remember, the only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time. If your project looks too big and daunting, breaking it down will help alleviate that feeling. This will also mean you won’t miss the August deadline.
  5. Order your items in good time, this will mean that should there be any problems you won’t have to rush to correct them. You can also use our multi-part payment scheme to pay over time if you are ordering over £100 worth of goods.
  6. Start your project and enjoy creating a truly original miniature delight!

We look forward to seeing all your entries. Remember the closing date is Midday on the 31st August.

    I have been working on my summer house project for the competition but I am having difficulty sorting out the roof. I want it to lift off completely.

    I have a vague idea about this, but has anyone else sorted out the problem?

  2. Hi Ruth

    It will be worth asking the question on the Discussion Forum – there is a thread about the Creative Competition here:

    I have sorted my problem and have finally completed my “Summer House Project”. Only today I have taken a disc in to get the photos. Now I just need to present it for the judging.
