Downton Abbey inspired button art
I am in love with the television show, Downton Abbey. So many things about the show inspire me: the story itself, of the end of an era and a world in the throes of wartime; the characters and their strength and beauty; and of course the gorgeous surroundings of the manor house. I recently began to design a series of paper art to celebrate the show. Here is the first piece, which features some beautiful vintage buttons.
- The metal button on the left reminded me of Sybil -- it's small, slightly modern and has an interesting, non-traditional pattern.
- The beautiful shell button in the middle is larger and sharply defined, just like, I think, the character Lady Mary.
- The small clear pressed glass button on the right's transparency and plainness reminded me of Edith.
