I started a couple years ago making terrain for a Dungeons and Dragons campaign before my imagination spread out into the vast world of 1:12 scale miniatures.

I'm not a stickler for exactness. If it's kind of sort of the right shape or size, I'll stick it in my scene. I use anything from pink house insulation foam to straws, coffee stir sticks, and chipboard.

As my mood varies, so do the rooms I create - one Christmas I was feeling the season and created a scene from Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol. I do prefer to create messy scenes involving lots of books. Even in sparse dungeons, I'll hide books. Witches, wizards, potions, spell books, apocalyptic scenes - these are my bread and butter.

Some projects take a couple of days, but the more detailed ones can take up to a month to complete. Somewhere along the way, I started teaching myself graphic design so that I could create printable things to put in my scenes. Spell pages, book covers and cabinet photographs (of my own ancestors!)

I don't see it as messy, but as lots of detail. I love finding all the little things like the wax seals, books with names on them, not just scribble, and the cat at 13 Acorn lane.
