I have been thinking of making something, using a combination of materials and totally from scratch, so I ended up with this freaky eye tree. :P 
The tree is made of polymer clay, while the base is made out of cork. The whole structure is painted with acrylic paints.
The top of the tree is decorated with dark green modeling bushes, which were patted with a goldish paint and covered with glitter.
The cork is hand sculped to resemble rocks and painted with acrylic paints. Around the little island I created a crystal moat, with pieces of actual broken crystal that are held together by lots and lots of silicon..! 
The front path is made out of silicon and real pebbles that were then painted with acrylic paints.
