    You are using paper chromatography - so your stationary phase is paper. Paper is made out of trees, or cellulose.

    The mobile phase in your case will be water.

    The mobile phase is the solvent you choose to use. The stationary phase is the paper itself, which has water molecules bound to its surface.
