Finally got this one done today. Canvas, with stenciled background, and many findings and painted shading. Some findings I made like the big gears and the key hole, the springs and a couple of the guitar picks. I really enjoyed making this one. I also did this easy way to frame a canvas using wood strips that gives it a neat shadow box look.

I really like how I can use so many techniques to come up with a really personalized and beautiful piece of art.
