Messages from the past – Fresh paint lo

Passover is all about telling a story, passing it to the younger generation. This way the miracle of God's deliverance will be remembered and history will never repeat itself. Our children will pass it on to their children and so on; this is a story of tradition and continuity. One way of getting into the Passover spirit in our family is spring cleaning which part of it is repainting dirty walls in the house. This is our family Passover tradition and a way for the kids to reflect on the holiday and its meaning.

This lo almost looks like a painted wall. I've used plain cardstock with strokes of white paint on it to resemble the paint on the wall. I added an acrylic house embellishment that was inked, stamped and embellished with rub on and bling. The title is made from chipboard that was painted with two colors of paint.
