No! I had never heard of it before, so when I was challenged by MORE TH>N Insurance to create my own carpet art I thought it sounded fun so here we go. MORE TH>N teamed up with award-winning artist Ed Chapman to create the first piece of carpet art, celebrating the achievement of Andy Murray and his Wimbledon victory. Research revealed that 35% of Brits have spilt or knocked food, drinks and other substances onto their carpets while getting over-excited watching sport on TV. I know I have had my fair share of accidents,including dark blue nail varnish with cream carpet!
How was this created well, it was common household spills and accidents include red wine, beer, coffee, paint, burn marks and loads more, I didn’t expect my small square to come up to this magnificent standard. Inspired by my friends autumnal effort at Over 40 and Mum to One, I thought autumn leaves and stains might work well so here is my stain/carpet/collage.
I used the most common stains from my house as well as a few from the list, paint, mud, tea, coffee, nail varnish and having a child felt tip!
Disclaimer I was sent a square of carpet and £10 contribution to my stains, the effort and words are all mine.
