Altered Dictionary - J

Another fortnight and another letter done for my Altered Dictionary.  This time we are playing with the letter 'J'.  I have chosen J for JUNIPER.  I am not sure if you can eat the berries but I do know that they make a spice out of the tree somehow :D


You can see all the bits of thread and stuff that will be poking out of the book when its closed.  I like that!!!!!  After painting up my page I went round the edge with this gorgeous mask by Crafty Individuals.  These rae lovely to use as they are made by Tando so very sturdy :D


Thank you for popping by my lovelies, Take care, soon be Christmas haha xxx

Hi Karen, great colours and that border is lovely. Juniper berries are edible, used as a spice. Pick the dark blue ones, dry them and crush them when required. We use it in the wild dinners, venison etc.

Hi Karen, love your J-page! Had already seen it at the Craft Barn. Will have to bow my head to see what kind of J word I can find. I think it's gonna be a tough one. Hugs Frea

I think you must have forgotten to approve my comment and just replied to my request for HELP instead.

I wanted to say I LOVE your page for the Juniper. I adore the purples and the stencil is super too. Love the white pen work which really sets it all off. Scrummy BJ

I am fairly sure you use juniper berries (dried) in soups and stuff.
Your dictionary pages are super. I love my dictionary and when it is closed it really looks neat. I will start on my J page tomorrow. This challenge is so much fun!!
