I am trying to decoupage, I think thats the word, pictures and images and stuff to a canvas for my mom and sisters for mothers day, I am confused on where to start or how to put the pictures on there, I don't want them transferred onto the canvas. Any help??

You are over thinking it Smiley Remember kindergarden? Same idea, glue (or mod podge or acrylic medium), item, more of your bonding stuff on top, move on to the next piece.
 I like to use a cheap quality flat shaped watercolor brush when I decoupage. The bristles are nice enough to give a good smoothing surface but the brush itself isn't so expensive as to be a waste of money if the mod podge builds up in it too much. Kid type plastic bristle brushes are horrid, I don't care if they are 20 for $1, they don't spread your medium well and leave big marks in the medium itself.

White glue is actually more forgiving in the laying down of your paper pieces as it dries slow enough that  you can peel them up to move more easily. Mod Podge & acrylic medium dry fast (making for a sooner finished project) but bond harder & faster than Elmer's. Not 3 seconds fast but faster than white glues.
