Creative Competition 2014 Winners!
6 November 2014
The Dolls House Emporium is delighted to announce the winners of the 2014 Creative Competition. It has been a unique competition this year as we opened up the requirements to encompass the full range of small builds on offer and you sent in a great range of creative miniatures.
In traditional reverse order, in 3rd place was Viki McDonnell, from Greenock, with her “Rowanberry Park Art Gallery & Studio”. Viki used the Retreat Kit to create this pretty entry, taking inspiration from “The Shanty Man” of Shetland.
In 2nd Place is Betty Melbourne from Chesterfield, with her take on Tolkien’s writing hut. Using the Summer House, Betty took inspiration from Tolkien’s own illustrations to create a hut suitable for the great writer.
And finally in 1st place, Amanda Richardson, from Melbourne Australia. Amanda took the Summer House too and used it to create ‘Mushroom Liddy’s Treehouse’ which looks like it’s been taken straight from a fantasy film set! Amanda describes her thought process below
I have been a miniature/dollhouse enthusiast since I was quite young and recently my young niece has got me interested in the whole fairy garden craze and I have made a few things for her and I also started sculpting fairies out of polymer clay. I was trying to think of ways to combine the two when I saw your competition advertised on your website in June, it was the perfect opportunity to get creative and ideas of a fairy tree house started flooding in. I originally had an idea in my mind of how it would look but it changed dramatically right from the start because of the branches I could find. I had to work around the branches rather than build the tree around my idea of how I wanted it to look. The tree house was built for Ms Mushroom Liddy (my niece, Maya named her) who is the fairy who mixes all of the fairy dust and potions for all other fairies in the land. Unfortunately I ran out of time to sculpt Mushroom Liddy so we will say that she is currently out collecting magic plants and herbs for her potions.
More images of the winners will be posted on The Dolls House Emporium blog over the next few weeks.
