LookbookAF! No fuss art = more joy, more beauty
Oh yes I mean it. When I think about what brings me joy in life, where I find magic every day, I think about art. Because I have learned to trust myself and what moves me. Also because art is not intellectual to me. It's all feeling. If a piece of art is making a big statement about politics or struggle or history, I can appreciate it absolutely, but that art is not bringing me joy and beauty. Art that makes me feel more alive is beauty for beauty's sake. It is transportive. It reminds me that the world is vast and gorgeous in more ways than I can imagine. That it is full of wonder and mystery - out there right now! That is the art that takes me to another level.
I've learned that our elemental signs can play a powerful role in showing us what will turn our own personal crank. As a Cancer, I'm a water sign. Images of water for me are pure bliss. I find them soothing and invigorating at the same time. They take me to a place that I LOVE to go in my mind, which is so powerful because during most days I don't get to actually be in a place that feeds my soul. So having that imagery around me truly does send me there for a moment.
Human beings are natural creatures, and I would argue that we need a lot more natural interaction than many of us get. Many of us live inside our home, office, gym, and various indoor places all day most days. Art can be a way to soothe our overstimulated minds and return to what nourishes us deep down.
But art is expensive! And how do you know if there is anything to this? Don't you wish you could try it out and see if you love living with these images? Don't you wish you could try art before throwing down a chunk of money? Me too. So I made it possible.
LookbookAF come broken down into the 4 elemental signs. AIR, WATER, EARTH, & FIRE. There are 11 gorgeous images in each one designed to let you try living with art and start paying attention to the way certain images make you feel. The book comes apart easily so you can tack or tape the images up in your house anywhere you like. The bedroom, the bathroom, your office, and start noticing where in your house art hits you the hardest. Looking for something rad for over your mantel? Try each one for a week and then have everyone in the family vote on their favorite.
This will help you get over the overwhelm of choosing art. You actually get to try it first. And then make a decision with confidence. You absolutely can build up your art muscle, it can get stronger, and LookbookAF can help. Once you learn what you like, you can buy a print or acrylic from the Art Fare Shop, or take that knowledge to buy from another artist! You will learn: I love bright colors and a definitely need people in the photograph, or I like really simple images with clean lines, etc. This is a way to actually learn what you like! Totally empowering.
You might be a AIR sign, your partner is EARTH, and your kiddo is WATER. At $18, LookbookAF are meant to be affordable enough to get one for everyone and have fun with this! When I was younger I loved how magazines and catalogs brought such beautiful imagery and locations and into my world for so cheap. I plastered my walls with my favorite pages from Vogue and the Esprit catalogs. Those Esprit catalogs were so dope because they were big and beautiful. 11x17, which is the exact size I've made these Lookbooks. It's a super common frame size so you have that option if you're the framing kind.
We all fall into one of the 4 elemental signs based on our birthdays. You might be thinking - I'm not into astronomy or any of this. Well, why not? If you live a life full of bliss already then yay I love it. But if you have room for improvement in the joy and beauty department, why not give these a try? You have nothing but 18 bucks to lose.
