Another beginner here from country sth aus.i have been reading and watching videos of all the marvellous displays and think it's time to have a crack myself .obviously will start off small and see how we go.
My recommendations for starting out is a basic covering of the house and garden.
I had an effective coverage doing the roof outline and two arches for my first year. 350 pixels is nothing compared to others but it made a difference.
Enjoy ACL and and the fun of this hobby!

Welcome to ACL.
There are upcoming mini Christmas expos being planned for a few months (covid restrictions pending). If you can get to 1 of those they are well worth getting to to learn a lot in a little time. There's actually a number of the past minis up on the ACL youtube channel.
