The Fragile *Kara-Jack*

My take on Kara's mini for the latest ScrapJacked challenge.


I chose to base it on "the fragile" by nine inch nails.

I have always loved this song.




Here are the lyrics:

She shines
In a world full of ugliness
She matters
When everything is meaningless

Fragile

She doesn't see her beauty
She tries to get away
Sometimes
It's just that nothing seems worth saving
I can't watch her slip away

I won't let you fall apart

She reads the minds of all the people as they pass her by
Hoping someone can see
If I could fix myself I'd--
But it's too late for me

I won't let you fall apart

We'll find the perfect place to go where we can run and hide
I'll build a wall and we can keep them on the other side

But they keep waiting
And picking
It's something I have to do
I was there, too

Before everything else
I was like you
* * * * * *

I am really pleased with how this came out.

The cover is made from a wooden placemat, fabric, velvet ribbon and scraps. The album itself feels fragile, because of the different elements I used to put it together.

Thanks for looking!
