Default Maybe a dumb question, but what is...

What is "direct to paper?' I've seen this mentioned a lot, but I'm not getting the concept. Do you use ink, chalks, or what? What do you do?

TIA!

Direct to paper means using the ink directly onto the paper...without help of any stamp, tool, etc. For example: If you wanted to get a worn look, you would crumple the paper and then flatten it out. Then you would take your ink and rub on top of the paper, to hit the "high" spots.

Someone may have a better explaination but here's mine..

The ink pad is applied "direct to paper" to create backgrounds etc. The "new" (to stampin up anyway) petal point chalk pads are perfect for this as they are small enough to "stamp" onto paper to create backgrounds.

Here's a link with some examples
http://www.rubberstampsclub.com/tips/directtopaper.html

And here's a description fromhttp://kimstamps.com/stech.htm

DIRECT TO PAPER

Apply colors directly to paper with Cat’s Eye, Petal Point, Colorbox, Paintbox, or Option Plates by gently rubbing the pad onto the paper. You can use the entire sponge surface or part of it (tip or edge). The movement of your hand will create a texture or pattern. Try different movements, never press or pull too hard. Reink often to avoid damaging the foam pad. This can create a beautiful background. Use 2-3 colors.

Stamp all the images with darker color ink. At this point you have 2 options:
Let it dry as is & consider your artwork finished.
Emboss the entire surface with Clear powder for an enameled effect.


HTH!

My understanding is that direct to paper just means applying (stamping or dragging) a stamp pad or spot to the paper. Usually used to achieve a textured look to the background.

Good luck with Hurricane Ivan. We lived in Pensacola when Opal and Erin hit. Not fun. You're in my prayers.

First, THANK YOU all for the quick responses. I'm going to have to try this. It sounds neat! I knew I would get great help here! Sad...I have so much homework that I'll have to wait until next weekend to try it, but I do appreciate all the info!!!

Second, thanks for the prayers about Ivan. I actually live in Navarre about 1 block from the Sound (Intercoastal Waterway). We are nervous and keeping a very close eye on things. We moved here the summer after Erin and Opal. Our closest brush with a storm was with Georges. When we moved here, the beach road from Navarre to Pensacola Beach was still closed to everyone but residents.

Thanks again, everyone, for the info on the direct to paper.

Hugs,
C
