Rainforest Canvas

I've become fascinated with sculpting fungus by felting them.  The treetrunk background is nuno felted,  then embellished by couching the woodiest looking threads and wools that I had, as well as some donated to my cause by a friend.  In some areas I've burnt into the trunk with a soldering iron.  After attaching the felted fungus I felt (tongue in cheek) that it needed some green fernery for interest.
