Downton Abbey icons

This batch was super fun to make! All of these are for 20inspirations and my claim was Downton Abbey [season two], we were given fifteen songs to use as inspiration for our icons and the remaining five would be our own song choices. Most of these are Mary, Matthew/Mary and Sybil icons, I feel kind of bad for not iconing other characters but I just have a lot of love for these three. I'm pretty content with how some of these turned out, I tried new techniques, colorings, even text in one of my icons and guess what? I don't hate it :D I hope you like them as much as I do.

2 - Ellie Goulding and Erik Hassle - Be Mine → "There'll be no last chance to promise to never mess it up again just the sweet pain of watching your back as you walk // It's a cruel thing you'll never know all the ways I tried It's a hard thing, faking a smile when I feel like I'm falling apart inside"

5 - James Morrison ft. Nelly Furtado - Broken Strings → "You can't play on broken strings // You can't feel anything that your heart don't want to feel"
6 - Rascal Flatts - What Hurts The Most → "It's hard to deal with the pain of losin' you everywhere I go // But I know if I could do it over I would trade, give away all the words that I saved in my heart that I left unspoken"
7 - Kate Havnevik - Unlike Me → "You live so intensely enjoy every minute of life // you stare at me, and ask me questions"
8 - Mariah Mcmanus - Unarmed → "I have a thing I'd like to say to you"

OH MY GOD! asdffghjkl
This is way too much!These are perfect!I love love the coloring and the composition itself. "Be Mine", "Polish Girl" and "Ships in the night" are so creative.I loved the negative space in "Breathe me".
Excellent job!
I saved absolutely everything.Thank you for posting them!

Thank you so much dear, you are so sweet!♥
OMG these are soooooooooo pretty! I love the combination of bright colors and muted colors, and the black and whites, and the shippiness. JUST EVERYTHING.

My absolute favorite has got to be Be Mine. SO CREATIVE. I don't know which ones I'm going to snag just yet, but I definitely want some.

I love 'Be Mine' too, I'm glad it came out like I wanted :D

thanks for the comment :)
These are so gorgeous ;_; (don't mind me if I cry, I'm still recovering from yesterday episode).
I am saving tons, I love Mary, Mary/Matthew, and Sybil more than anything else too.
Enjoy :)
I love these so much I want to cry. That also might be because of my mental state after watching 2x05...
hahah I know what you mean. Thanks for the comment :)
oh my godness. They are incredible!!
You are so kind, thanks :D
so incredibly stunning mary aaahhh!!!!!!!!!
aaahhh thank you :D
I think I might have just snagged pretty much all of them. nbd.

Fantastic! I took Ships in the Night ♥
Ty, enjoy :)
Mary darling! you know I LOVE THESE, especially since they all have a story with the songs especially. My absolute favorite is easily the Sybil/Branson one though, both the original and the bw one. Just stunning. use of pictures etc.
Thank you so much for your lovely comment, Nat!♥
These are soso stunning ♥ I love them! 1,2,7,9,13 & 14 are my absolute favourites :)
Thank youuuu :D
ok actually i still have to watch downtown abbey but i'm in love with every single icon here &hearts especially 3,13,15 <3
I don't know what this show is about, really, but it's very popular now, isn't it?

I really like your icons, they are all so different from each other and I like that you kept the colours a bit low, and didn't do a lot of the vibrance thing (even though I like doing that myself a lot). But it's nice to see normal and natural colours aswell :)
I think my favourite icon is the one for 'Broken Strings'. I like the composition and the colours. I also really like the 2nd alternate. The red is just so beautiful! (Oh, and green+red is always beautiful to me :D)
Oh it's wonderful. The first season is flawless!

I tried to keep a theme for all of them but yeah, I couldn't do that and just went for whatever I felt like doing :P
One of the things I tried was soft colors so I'm glad you noticed :)
These are amazing! I love them all. Saved a couple (okay really quite few because I can't choose). I may be found sitting in front of my computer, staring at these icons until the next Downton Abbey episode airs.
hahaha that's a lovely compliment, thanks :D
gorgeous! love your coloring. somebody i used to know, unlike me, fear you won't fall, moving to mars and alterante 5 are my favorites.
Thanks :)
