    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Pam asked: "I see cards in the gallery using the "Faux Burned Paper" technique. But I don't see that technique in your "Resources". Can you help me....PLEASE!!!"
    A: It looks pretty easy. Tear the edges of your paper and sponge them with a darker ink (dark brown or gray). Roll or crumple the sponged edge a bit. Voila....it looks like burned paper.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Rosy has a suggestion for the Pixel Embellishment Tutorial: "For those who are extremely patient, they could just go ahead and 'paint' a face or scenery with the perfect pearls, then line them up just like mosaic. "
