The main components i'm lacking is the showing not telling concept and descriptive writing to create imagery-- a part of that is telling them what is happening and not utilising all senses e.g. smelling, hearing etc...

My best advice is to make the creative as simple as possible --> Keep it to one setting and one/two character/s. Put in many similes, metaphors, and motifs. Make it first person & past tense, as this is easier for discovery. Also just describe the smells, sounds, feelings etc. using metaphors and similes as this add a bit more complexity and depth.

If I sent you what i've written so far could you tell me if I could improve and what direction to take to emphasise the concept of discovery?
