Creative Team Inspiration


Creative Guest Anguree Jensen van Rensburg

This month we have invited the fabulous artist Anguree as out Creative Guest! Welcome!

Creative Guest Facts

Hello dear Words and Paintery friends. I am incredibly honored and excited to be guesting this month and so very grateful for this opportunity.

More about me:  I live in the beautiful top end of Australia and love to work with mix media. I mainly create layouts, cards, ATC cards but also love to do off the page projects. I love to try new techniques and experiment with different products. This also mean that my style can vary from greatly from one project to another.

 I am incredibly honored to have been chosen as Australian Cardmaker of the year (2017) and serve on a number of different design teams. Through the years I have been fortunate to be published in various magazines including Australian Simply Cards, Scrapbooking Memories and Creative Papercraft Magazine.

 I craft because it makes me happy. I love to share this passion with others and hope that it will encourage them to play along and find the same kind of happiness. To me it's all about sharing the little things that makes life a happier place. 

I hope you like what I created and hope it inspires you to play along. Make sure you use the opportunity, have fun, challenge yourself and stand a chance to win one of the fabulous prizes by the wonderful sponsors. Xxx

The Project

 I chose a dark background to emphasize the idea of limitless space and the idea of creating without any limits or boundaries. Dark backgrounds tends to stretch our imagination and force us to go beyond the comfort of white and subtle creations.  It makes your colors pop and enhances every little detail you add. 

Thank you SO much Anguree for this fantastic project!
