Work in Progress: Forest Themed Collage

This forest themed collage started off with white birches in mind, but has taken a twist. I wanted to add "lichen," which led to crocheted pieces, which led to wanting more texture and depth, which led to burlap ribbon, which led to buttons and wire and other do-dads. Not sure where this will end up, but I'm enjoying it. This process reminds me of winter days when a friend and I would "go get lost" snowshoeing in the woods out back. We'd break trail and get off the beaten path, never quite sure where we'd end up.
