Hello. I made three 8x8 Artbooking cuts (cardstock, no photos), which I would like to now adhere to some 8X8 stretched canvases.

In the past I have used Mod Podge on canvas with pretty good success. But that was for very simplistic cuts. These particular pieces have layers and phrases on them. The paper I used was expensive and I spent too much time on these to mess them up now. Because of the layers, I worry about bubbles once I add the Mod Podge.

What would you suggest using? I have gesso and can cover the canvas with that. Then what should I use to adhere the paper to the canvas?

Someone on another forum suggested Golden Gel Medium. I have never heard of this.

What do you use when adhering cardstock to stretched canvas?

Thanks in advance for any and all replies!!!

I would adhere it with my atg, and then maybe go back an modge podge it if the colors wouldn't run. If it is adhered well and kept smooth, it shouldn't bubble. For larger pieces, you could use Yes paste.

When I make wall canvases I Mod Podge the background paper to the canvas first and then add my layers.

I made 2 8x8 sized canvases recently and I spent alot of time smoothing it down which would be difficult if all of your embellishments are already stuck down.

I've also used the spray on Mod Podge (very lightly) to put a protective seal on my project before putting it on canvas but the corners curled up.

Have you considered using a shadow box instead of a canvas?

I recently made several canvases covered with paper. I used that new E6000 spray adhesive and it works perfectly! The spray has no odor and it is a pump spray so it goes right where you want it to go. Maybe give it a try; I think you will be pleased!
