Leaf Rubbing Art

leaf rubbing

Start by gathering some leaves. Place them, bottom side facing up, on a flat surface and place your paper over top. Rub the side of a crayon or pencil gently over the area of the leaf until the outlines start to appear. Once you master the technique, you can experiment with rubbings from other objects and textures to create some really interesting artwork.
