Page 135 and 136

Advanced Art Class: Okay, so my art today is actually not so advanced! Haha! 

Remember doing leaf rubbings in school? I wanted to take that concept and apply it to a layout! Gather a few leaves, some white printer paper, and a white crayon. (You could also do this with another resist method, like rubber cement or resist ink, but I wanted to go old school!) Lay the leaves under the paper, veins up so that they will give a nice impression. Rub the crayon all over them. 

Use some watercolors
or use some mists with a paintbrush dipped in! Paint over the crayon and your image will start to appear!

Cut out the leaves. I love that they curl up just like real leaves!
