The Golden Gate Bridge

I took this photo on a quick trip to San Francisco, CA with my dad to pick up his uncle at the airport when I was just 15. We were visiting my late Uncle Bob at the time who lived right outside of the city. This photo worked out perfectly for C.S.I.'s Case File #33!
Here's a look at it!
This is how I used the evidence:
*liquid medium-I used paint and glimmer mists.
*wood/woodgrain-The red and grey frames
*sand-like stuff-I embossed a sand like pattern onto the misted paper, and used actual sand inside the red frame.
*something shiny-I cut and embossed the silver anchor inside the frame.
*white background-My misted paper started out white.
*metal-The anchor
*create shadows-I used black soot distress ink and my blending tool around the frames, and to mask the compass.
*transparent-I used a clear plastic, which I stitched around the edges, to make a pouch for the sand and shells inside the red frame.
*triangles-I angled the red frame like a triangle.
*nautical elements-I cut the sailboat, ship wheel, and anchor with my Cricut (life's a beach cartridge).

This is how I used the testimony:
*document a landmark you've seen
*journaling strips
*I used the inspiration word light.
Thanks for looking!
