Candle burned paper collage

I am trying something new, and I'm addicted. I am taking decorative scrapbook paper and cutting out pieces that I want to assemble in a collage. My twist that I find beautiful and fun to do is to burn the outer edges with a candle.
Then I add them to a wooden shadowbox that I painted black.
This one is the first of many. I finished it this afternoon and am working on 2 more right now :)

Update - I added wax to my collage to give it a finished, pulled together look :)
