Making a mess on the carpet

We’ve all dropped something on the carpet by accident haven’t we.  I know I’ve dropped wine, tea and nail varnish on carpet over the years. Then you have the stress of getting the carpet clean again! So imagine my delight when More Th>n said they’d be happy for me to be making a mess on the carpet!!

More Th>n recently teamed up with the award-winning artist Ed Chapman to create the world’s first carpet art.

As Andy Murray’s Wimbledon victory was voted the greatest British sporting achievement of 2013, the carpet artwork depicts the moment Murray lifted the Wimbledon trophy – the materials used include red wine, beer, coffee, paint, burn marks and loads more.

Well I can imagine that’s been me at the end of one or two Grand Prix seasons – certainly the year that Felipe Massa had won the world championship for all of a couple of minutes!

So More Th>n set me a challenge – making a mess on the carpet with the usual ‘stain paints’ you have to deal with.

I decided that my ‘stain paints’ would be a bottle of Rose wine, some foundation, blue nail varnish, red lipstick and grey eye shadow.  I also used a black marker pen.

I’m no Rembrandt, Picasso or Chapman, but I had a bit of fun this morning creating some of my own #carpetart, making a mess on the carpet with More Th>n

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
