DESCRIPTIONS AND IMAGES:
As light plays such an important role in the way we see everything especially art, it is not always possible, although all endeavours have been made, to guarantee that when viewed via different systems, an exact colour reproduction of the art work will have been achieved. Art work and colours on screen are as close a representation as possible.Descriptions and images are as accurate as possible but should only be used as a guide.

COMMISSIONS:
If you would like to commission an original tissue paper collage for yourself or as a special gift for someone else, please contact Victoria to discuss requirements.

An original piece of art work makes a wonderful and totally unique gift for someone special on any occasion.

FRAMING AND MOUNTS:
If framed, all original art work and limited edition prints are professionally framed in either;
solid wood frames with either a silver or gold leaf finish,
or,
a European oak frame (Depending on size, these can be hung on a wall in the traditional way, however some of these frames are chunky enough to actually stand up alone).

Some art work is float mounted as opposed to the traditional technique. All art work is mounted using acid free tape and archival mount board - all of which cares best for original art work.

A lot of thought and consideration, as well as expert advice goes in to how the art work is framed and mounted, ensuring the art work is enhanced and protected.

ADVICE:
The tissue paper collage technique that Victoria Bellas Carter uses ensures colours and textures created are vibrant, bright and fresh. Due to the technique unframed art work may become tacky under extreme temperatures. It is advisable not to place papers or other items directly on top of unframed art work.

Framed Art works displayed and for sale at www.victoriabellascarter.com are framed to professional standards. Framed art work is therefore enhanced and protected more so, than unframed artwork.

As with any Original Unframed Artwork on paper or canvas:
- Do not place items or papers directly on top of artwork unless wrapped in cellophane.
- Avoid hanging in direct sunlight.
