Ensnared

What once was whole is broken; brother against brother ... divided loyalties; entangled by my own sense of allegiance ... my heart knows not which way to turn.
I had quite a tumultous last few weeks and have been working on this page off and on for the last couple of weeks. This is a page I did in Andi's Leonardo Calendar Journal.

To portray the feeling of being pulled in two different directions I used the string art technique posted on the
Altered Books group this month.

The piece you did for Andi's journal is very strong emotionally and certainly conveys the tumult you mentioned.

I like the fabric work - both tags and page.
