Fantasy Door ideas
Top images are various ideas leading towards how I'll enter my tree, give it a personality. I have borrowed from the two bottom images for ideas, recreated the open doors as a way to enter my tree and designed windows and houses similar to the istock on the right as my tree decorations, this includes rendering a tree in photoshop to then cut up into planks, and using simple textures to create my roofs.

Enid Blyton Books and Fantasy Children Movies
The movies that most appeal to me are ones like Narnia, Tarabithia, the Mythmaker where the design contains a mix of fantasy and real to life elements, as I think these are more interesting that just a cartoon. Also would need to hire an illustrator if were to look at cartoon people as my drawing skills pretty abysmal.
