My last three silk fusion pages

I have finally finished my silk fusion series. This one is for November and includes some little star flowers.

We had such a beautiful and snowy winter. My December page is a remembrance of the snow that seemed to fall from the sky almost daily.

My April page is a pansy that I made from the Beaded Garden book by Diane Fitzgerald. Pansies appeared in the local stores during the month and are one of my favorite signs of spring.

To see my May silk fusion page, you need to look back in my archives. I made the page a year ago when I first signed up to be a participant in this bead journal journey.

May encrusted page and three silk fusion pages

This is the May page in my series of encrusted bead pages--and the last. May is when our grass is finally green and the leaves will burst forth on our trees just before Mother's Day. It is late here in NH, but all the more appreciated after a very snowy and cold winter.

I found these fantail fish at a local bead shop. I just had to make them swim on a silk fusion page. Is there such a fish as a fantail cat fish?

I am heavily influenced now by the spring blooms. I do love seeing the flowers popping out of the ground. The crocus are finally blooming with daffodils showing buds.

This butterfly is from the book The Beaded Garden by Diane Fitzgerald and is done with brick stitch. This definitely makes me think of the summer months to come.
