She explains about using crayons to make rubbings onto paper. I tried, using an Indian carved wood table top, plain white paper and one colour. Pretty, but a little boring:
so then I cut paper from a saved Starbucks bag and used pink, red, yellow and gold all together one on top of the other, which I thought was very pretty (and used, torn up into smaller peices, in my art journal) :
Sorry if the pics don't come out too well, like I say I'm very new to all this ;-)... but give it a try. It really does look nice. And of course there's nothing special about the brown paper I used, if anything packing paper might be even nicer because if I remember right it has a slight ribbing pattern in it. Enjoy!
