For great tutorials with distress inks I recommend searching You Tube. There are lots of videos out there.

For applying direct to paper, I think the method depends on what you want the end result to be.

If I am doing something "Michelle Zindorf like" where I want to make somewhat of a picutre or scene, I use the fingertips of my left hand to lightly hold the paper on my work surface and apply the inks with my right hand. I am right-handed so the reverse would be true if I was left-handed. Michelle is so awesome and I recommed her blog where she has a ton of tutorials, many using direct to paper.

If I just want an all over background of various shades/tones/color then I prefer to use the method best described and used by Sherry Cheever (BadSherry).
See her tutorial here:


The important thing is just experiment to find what works for you and have fun!
