It has been a long time since I did a tutorial. I thought I would share with you how burned paper bag technique looks. I remember doing burned paper bag technique more than 20 years ago. I used a candle to heat the glue then. Now I use my heat gun and it goes a lot quicker and makes less mess.
I use a scrap piece of cardstock to smear the glue in a thin layer
I take my heat gun and I heat the glue. It will bubble and pop. I heat it until the glue is transparent.
When it cools it looks like this. It is shiny and has texture. It feels a little like leather.
Using black stazon ink, I stamped the leaf over the layer of dried glue. I used the leaf from Mark's Finest Papers set called AUTUMN GLORY.
To add color to my leaves, I took an acetate report folder and I scribbled with "Fall" colored markers onto the folder.
I then painted over the glue. Since I was going to cut the leaves out, I wasn't very careful about painting in the lines. I just put down the color.
