Sorry if this has been asked, I couldn't find it anywhere

I'm doing a wall hanging on canvas album pages that need to be sealed against dust, etc. I'm going to mod pod the paper after I have it on, but what do you think would be best for initially adhering the paper?

These are my choices:
-glossy accents
-tombow mono
-tombow metal
-tacky tape
-mod pod

I have others (glue dots, zig 2 way, runners) but am kind of ruling them out, I just don't think they will last long enough. This is for the baby and I want her to have it as long as she wants it.

Oh and I will be stitching a little so there will be some added strength, plus the canvas is partially painted with either acrylics or glimmer glam.

I would go out and grab some zip dry but the weather is ugly and I just don't wanna

Thanks

I would go with a fabric glue (i got mine from walmart) because it's thicker and doesn't absorb into the canvas. I would also do dots.

I'd do the whole thing with modpodge.

zip dry works great that's what quick quotes suggests.

I would use Fabric Tac or 3n1 Tacky Glue. But, if you are limited to your list-I would use the mod podge to adhere your papers and then use it to seal.
