Beach Dragonfly Dust Artworks




Welcome to my Limited Edition Beach Dragonfly Artworks.
If you are interested in making purchase today, I ask that you please take a few minutes to read about these butterflies, the wait times, how they are created and how to order them as there are some details that you will need to know.

WHAT IS A BEACH DRAGONFLY?

I draw and colour these Dragonflies in the sand of Mullaloo Beach. Each dragonly that I create is a completely organic mess of colour and sun dust. The dust is not unlike water colour paint, in that it bleeds over each other with the dampness of the sand to create beautiful tones. No two dragonflies are the same. Each dragonfly is blessed with a prayer for the person who the dragonfly is being created for and well wishes for their family as I am creating it. I email you the image in a high resolution digital jpeg format. You may then print the image as many times as you please and all the way up to poster size. Each dragonfly is an original piece of art that only you will own. 

HOW MUCH?

Each custom Angel Dust Butterfly Drawing is on special for $46 AUS (which works out to be around $36 USA). Paypal will advise you of what that converts to before you confirm your payment if you are overseas.  Please consider your purchase as I am unable to offer refunds for these images due to the amount of time it takes to create each dragon.

Why do I have to pay $46 when your Gallery Beach Butterflies are only $15 each? Good question! When you order one of these butterflies, I will custom create one just for you. The artwork will be a one off original piece that only you will own. Instead of just having your loved one's name placed over the image in a pretty font like my Gallery Butterflies, I will actually write their name with the butterfly in the sand, making the butterfly completely unique to them. Another reason why these creations are more expensive is because a great deal of time goes into each one. For every dragonfly that I draw there is probably 10 or 11 other dragonflies that were washed out to sea before I could complete them. It sometimes takes me 3 beach trips just to complete one dragonfly.

WHAT IS THE WAIT TIME?

These artworks can take anywhere up to 1 month.  Because I am working with nature and it is only me creating each dragonfly, this is the reason for the lengthy wait time. It is also the reason why I only take orders 1-2 times a year. It all depends on the weather and how many people made and order prior to you. The other main reason why it takes so long is because of how many dragonflies it takes me to draw just to complete one drawing. Please do not order a dragonfly if you need it urgently.

COLOUR CHOICES

Above is the colour number chart which allows you to choose 1 of the 10 multiple colours available. Whichever  number you choose, I will use those colours and tones for your butterfly. Please double click on the colour chart to enlarge its view

CAN I HAVE MORE THAN ONE NAME OR MORE THAN ONE BUTTERFLY IN THE SAME PHOTO?
Anymore than one name makes the dragonfly too busy as it means I have to write the letters much smaller to fit gaps in which looks messy due to all the sand clumps that fall around each letter. I also find there is usually not enough time to write more than one name as the water comes in too quickly. These butterflies stay on the beach for moments only. My apologies to those disappointed. If you were wanting more than one name featured or more than one dragonfly you may want to visit the $15 Angel Dust Butterfly Gallery. In the past two years there has only been two nights that I have been able to get more than one angel dust butterfly drawn for the same image. This is due to the time that it takes to draw each one. So unfortunately I am unable to offer that service. Orders made with anymore than one or dragonfly for the same image will be refunded automatically.

WHAT IF I DIDN'T NAME MY BABY?
If you would like a dragonfly created for a baby who was too young to be named, you can have the dragonfly on its own without a name or you are welcome to have a nickname featured. If you have endured multiple losses I can draw love hearts above the wings of your dragonfly. Just enter the number of hearts you would like drawn into the payment window, where I ask for your loved one's name. If you would like no hearts or no name featured just enter "No Name" into the window of the payment button. If you are choosing to have a name featured but would still like to honour your babies that were not named you can have hearts placed above the wings too. In the ordering section where you enter your chosen name just add "With 2 Hearts" or how every many you need and I will do that for you.

HOW DO I ORDER ONE?
You can order your dragonfly just below on this page when the orders are open.  Please make a note of your paypal email as that is where I will be sending your dragonfly. If you need to change your email you can let me know in the "Special Instructions or Note to Seller" section of your paypal payment. If this option doesn't come up for you please forward me your paypal receipt with your new email address to carlymariedudley@gmail.com

Once you make your order I will place the name you requested onto my wait list. Please know this may take up to 7 days as I alter the wait list once a week.

PLEASE CONSIDER YOUR PURCHASE CAREFULLY 

Please take the time to choose you colours carefully as I do not offer refunds if you change your mind about the colours after the dragonfly has been created and sent to you.

 INFORMATION FOR PRINTING

To ensure vibrant colours, I always advise choosing a good quality photo lab like Kodak to print your images. If you choose a cheap place to print your images, the colours are usually not as vibrant.
When you go to print your images at a photo lab, sometimes staff members ask for proof that the images are yours. It is a great idea to take your paypal receipt with you full order so that they can see that you are not breaching copyright and that you paid for these images.

THANK YOU

If you choose to purchase a piece of my artwork today, I send you all my love and gratitude. It is because of people like you that I am able to keep on creating my art and running my free world-wide community projects. Thank you for supporting my heartwork.

Many blessings and peace to you,
CarlyMarie
