121 4"x4" pages for recycle technique FAT book!

I am 1 of 120 participants in a technique fat book with the theme of using recycled material. I chose shredded paper from the shredder!!!!! What was I thinking? I used 6 full sheets of arches 300 lb watercolor paper. Sprayed craft spray adhesive to the papers and then sprinkled the shredded paper, sshmoosed it down, more spray, more paper. Let it dry. I used tim holtz colorwash inks and glitter mists. I layered several colors on the papers. The squares have a soft sparkle to them. After they were dry I laid a double piece of waxed paper on the papers and ironed them as flat as I could. Then.....cut, cut, cut, cut etc.
