Description:

Does anyone remember doing this art in school? See the amazing number of shapes and textures in nature.. Use paper and crayons or pencils to make rubbings of leaves, bark of different trees, rocks, and other cool stuff you find outdoors. Something you think the outline or texture of is really cool! You can also find great things to make rubbings of inside your home as well!! If you have kids, maybe you'll let them help!

What You Need:

•Paper (paper with no lines works best) computer paper works very well. •Crayons or a pencil How To Make a Rubbing:

1.Look for objects that are rough, bumpy or feel interesting. 2.Hold your paper over the object. 3.Hold your crayon or pencil on its side and rub across the bumpy parts. For fun, try using different colors together.

Please have fun with this swap! Senders choice! Send your partner one rubbing, any more is optional and not required. Newbies are welcome, please have a well filled out profile or you may be removed from the swap. PLEASE rate your partner a 5 if you receive rubbing art from them, even if it is a rubbing of a turtle and you hate turtles! This sure brings back memories for me! And it sure does relieve stress! Take a walk or ride around outside and see what you can find! I'm giving lots of time for this swap for those who very busy but want to join in! These can be mailed in a regular envelope, so yes they can be folded. Make sure to include a note telling your partner what it is you did the rubbing of! Easy peasy!

I always liked finding leaves in the Fall and doing this.

It is fun. I decided to make this because I wanted something different. I hope more people join!

This brings back such great memories. I was so excited about this swap when I first saw it that I just had to join. I'm looking forward to the mini-adventure I'll have tomorrow when I do my textures :)

It is fun. We used to do rubbings of headstones when I was a kid.
