So beautiful! It's perfect! *_*  Thank you for sharing, a look at beauty really brightens my day.  I'd love to see that glittering under the sun.  It must be simply amazing.

Now... ehm... for the critique.  I have nothing to criticise about the tree itself, really, from top to roots it looks wonderful.  It's more about the platform.  From the thumbnail I thought it was a tree on top of a hat.  I guess there is so much you can do with a platform that size, but I was wondering how feasible it could be to do one with a slope and the roots sliding down it.
(I used to make mini landscapes with moss and cork for Christmas cribs and always wanted to make them real dramatic, so it may be just my mania about that.)

It's hard for me to envision what you're saying about a slope with the roots sliding down. Can you describe it a little differently? Do you have pics of some of the landscapes you've made? I'd love to see them! Perhaps they'd give me some inspiration...

I am afraid I have no pics... I left them all behind in another country Sad
But I used green moss and big chunks of natural cork, then lichens and tiny plants to complete.
Anyway, I couldn't find a picture that gave the approximate idea either, so here's one of my sad pc drawings to illustrate what I meant, I hope it helps.


Basically, my take is that an uneven surface would look more romantic and compliment the artwork better.  So I was thinking of a triangular base.  Does it make any sense?

Edit:  I'm thinking that then the tree should have an inclination towards the slope, to keep the balance.
