Mixed Media - Type of Glue to use with Acrylic Paints on canvas

I am just now starting to paint using acrylics and would like to experiment with some collage work/mixed media. What kind of glue would you recommend to affix paper on to a piece of canvas that will adhere without coming off once paint is applied? Any dos and don'ts will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Use Agrylic Gel Medium - an excellent product for glueing and sealing your work.
