In elementary school we made dreamcatchers during art class. I was so proud of my creation I brought it home to my parents. They hung it in their bedroom and it stayed there until we moved house. I was convinced the dreamcatcher worked because whenever I slept in my parent’s room I never had bad dreams. I had recurring nightmares as a kid so I frequently slept in their bedroom.
Now, I have the occasional nightmare but I regularly dream. And are they VIVID! Honestly, I sometimes have difficulty separating reality from fiction. My dreams make a whole lot of sense during my REM cycle but when I wake up I realize they do not occur in a sensible order. The dream starts one way, switches scenes, plays out, then returns to the original thought. I think it is really funny I clearly remember the details, though. I am pretty sure I dream in HD.
For this prompt I would have loved to paint dreamcatchers but I my skills are not quite there so I decided to stay with my trusty abstract ideas. However, because of this, it took me a while to think of a suitable design. I am glad I stamped. I probably would not have the patience to freehand this look.
I purchased the new Pueen Cosmetics (Leisure Collection) stamping collection. I could not help myself. I love the brand’s designs and the plates are high quality. I have had no trouble scraping, transferring or stamping and I like that they are not separate images but full plate designs. I am highly anticipating the release of the Festival collection in December!
I hope you like it!
I started with 2 coats of Milani Peacock as my base.
I sponged with a foam eyeshadow applicator Milani Peacock, Vivid Violet, Power Periwinkle and Color Club Pucci-licious.
I stamped with Konad Special Polish Black, White and PUEEN Cosmetics plate PUEEN 77.

I’m so jealous you remember the details and ‘dream in HD’! : ) That’s awesome!
I sometimes wake up crying and even THEN I don’t really remember in detail what it was I’m crying about.
My nightmares are usually about me being murdered, or other innocent people, usually children, being stabbed, usually by Nazis.
I know, right?
But I actually like (in a weird way) waking up crying and gasping for air – I’m like, good job brain, look how powerful your concoctions are!
Now that I think of it, I might need a dreamchatcher…
Lovely mani, the background makes it look trippy, perfect for dreams!
OMG. I am so glad I am not the only person who cries in her sleep!! I wake up and my eyes are super puffy like they only get after I cry and I wonder what happened! Sometimes I don’t remember what I’m dreaming about..but maybe that’s a good thing in these instances. lol.
Recurring nightmares are really weird aren’t they?…So is dream interpretation since they’re not supposed to be taken literally!
