Guardian of the stone - Finnabair Ambassador


Moikka and happy Sunday! During the week Finnabair Ambassadors took a trip to Ireland and to Anna's wonderful house, Innisfail. Well, unfortunately we weren't there physically, but drew inspiration from the name of the house. You can see the original post here (link).


For the post about Innisfail I did this journal page. When Louise suggested this topic, I was so excited! There was so much to be inspired by in that word - Innisfail. You could use the story, the material (stone), the connection to Ireland...

I decided to go with the first image that I had in my head after reading the Wikipedia article and about the legend. The first image was an angel guarding a stone. I guess that was the connection to the patron saint that led me to the angel and well, stone is quite obvious. 

As the whole thing was connected to Ireland, I just needed to use the greens in somewhere and added some Art Stones for texture and colored the background with several colors of green. I also used the green shade of the Antique Brilliance Wax ('Lucky Emerald') to age my page a bit, although the old book pages I used were tinted from the beginning. The book papers seemed appropriate as the background, like the central composition is raising from the legend and stories.


Thank you for stopping by today! Please visit the original Ambassador post (link) to see how the other ambassadors interpret the theme! Wishing you a great start to the new week!

  1. What a fabulous creation. Love the different embellishment items.
    Can I ask if you used a mold for the face with "hair" ? Or is it a face you bought that way ? I'm collecting face molds and did'nt find any like the one you used ... Please let me know where you bought the mold / face ??? Please ?
    Thank you for sharing your lovely art work.

    1. Hi Monica! The face is indeed a mold, it's actually the whole angel with the wings, but as I used hot glue to make the shape, I could easily cut the wings off and use them separate from the head. It's an IOD mould, Baroque 5 (https://www.primamarketinginc.com/shop/catalog/product/view/id/9701/s/vintage-art-decor-mould-baroque-5/category/486/)
