Afros365 Follow-up

Unicia R. Buster completed her Afros365 project on July 25, 2016... 

What are the biggest lessons/skills you learned from doing your project? I learned how to needle-felt, create stencils using a hot glue gun and glue sticks, and create with almost anything.

In what ways did the project change your life? During this year-long journey, I discovered ingenuity and willpower. I didn't realize I had them in me, especially seeing all of the unfinished projects laying around my home. I also realized that my work affects other people in a positive and encouraging way. This is life-changing indeed. I have found my love for art again.

Now what? I have started an adult coloring book (I've already drawn 25 pages) which sprung from this project. I have applied to a local gallery for an art exhibition of new work and I am on Day 4 of Declutter 365 of which I am applying the same ingenuity and willpower to declutter and reinvent my home space. I did a poll for a new 365 creativity journey and the results for a theme were tied between natural hair, locs and my echo-line drawings. I plan to do a combination of all three and start that in September.
