This started off as a slice of tree (purchased at Micheals). I carved a pond into it, painted the bottom of the pond with olive and poured in a clear resin (it is still drying here so it's not fully clear yet). I added this powerery green stuff used by railroad model builders, then added bits of bark, bits of hair, lichen, the tree is a dried grass type plant I found on the side of the road, tree seeds, moss, and a bone I found in the yard.
I'm painting a dragon and female warrior who will grace this stage!
I'm stupid pleased with how this turned out, it's my first model background.
