Place a leaf underneath your paper, roughly in the middle of the page. With the side of your pencil, rub onto the surface of the page with a gentle, even pressure. Maintain a consistent horizontal direction as you rub.
Place another leaf under the paper on the edge and rub. Continue to shift the leaf’s position under the page and rub until you have achieved the appearance of a forest of trees.
Place a gritty material like salt or pepper under the paper towards the top of the page, and gently rub with your pencil to create the appearance of the moon.
Repeat this process with a different material to evoke the texture of water in the bottom half of the page. In this example, an ipad case has been used.
Choose another texture, such as bark, to create the sky. Position the material under the page and rub. Reposition the material and rub multiple times until you have filled the area for the sky completely.
