impression mats and patterned rolling pins, etc. are the conventional ways, but heck you can use anything you've got to make an impression... think outside the box. look around your house and look for anything that can be pressed in to make a design.

Actually roll out the dough a tiny bit thicker than you want it, then press the impression mat on.

I remember once a gal used a *screw* to texture her blanket!!
