when I thought of doing artwork
possibly for sale again
I wanted a new name for a business
letting ImpressionsArt go...
since I love working with
art supplies and materials
from my treasure hunting at thrift stores, etc
I oftentimes redefine the use and original purpose
and therefore "save the junk"
and give it a second life
in my book Art Stamping Workshop
my editor/friend Tonia
used the term
to describe a project I designed
stamping on a secondhand silk blouse...
so that idea surfaced for me
when she named the project
that went to print that way...
I remember liking it a lot:
thank you, Tonia...
