Tweaking my fantle

One thing that never feels quite right to me is creating vignettes. I am simply not good at it. Maybe it’s because my depth perception is terrible, maybe I need some lessons.
I took some of my favourite things that were scattered all over and put them together. I tried to keep them all in the same colour range; black, silver, grey and white.
I like it better.

Earlier today I took this and it became this with the help of some metallic grey paint
