RE: Starry night with shaving cream

I had the students draw a landscape on black paper the same width as the
marbled paper. I then traced over the top edge of their landscape with a
silver gel pen and told them to cut on that line so that they end up with a
silhouette. Ahh, now that I reread your post, I see that you want something
brighter. Well, anyway, here is how we did them for anyone who is curious.
