Decided to see if i could make hard cosmic smashbook covers with none of my equipment. So I ripped up some egg cartons (next time a little smaller pieces), and  threw them in a bowl with water overnight.  Today I added some glitter, a little red and purple tissue paper and a little white glue. Then I scooped it out with hands, dropped it right on to towels in sort of a rectangle, topped it with another towel and squished it flatter. Flipped the whole thing over. Flattened a little more with rolling pin, and switched to another towel with a little texture (probably won’t press in because pulp is too heavy) and now left to dry.
Its supposed to rain for a week so I may not be able to get it dry, but we will see.
Now its sit and wait and think of all the other things I could try.
