The ivy won’t lie down!

Standard

The definitely ‘blasted’ but not quite oak

Repainted, real branches soaked in white glue, painted and added then the whole lot sanded down.  The lighting wire can be seen emerging from a tree root centre right, clothed in black plastic sheathing to protect it from any of the numerous glues being used to affix the whole shebang.

Blending of real twig with painted kitchen roll inner

Moss and a closer look at rubbed down ‘bark’ – oh, and yes, couldn’t resist adding the rabbit.  The white blob immediately to the left of the tree is a flickering fire on/off over which a (hopefully) a fern will provide cover, as and when the leafage arrives.

The ivy just wont' lie down flat.  Will wait till present gluing dries and will go at it again.  [Have it wrapped in bubble wrap strips over night like a hair net - for those of us old enough to know what I mean]

Still to go:  ferns (as mentioned), possibly the odd bird/nest,some further dressing of tree stumps a-lying around.
