I am new to the Cricut world and so far I am just frustrated! I have been trying to transfer vinyl to painted canvas, but I cannot get it to stick. I am using regular vinyl and contact paper to transfer. I thought the contact paper might be too sticky so I stuck it on an old shirt several times before using it on the vinyl--hoping that would help. No luck. It still won't stick to the painted canvas. Any suggestions???

If you are saying the decorative vinyl you have cut out is not sticking to the canvas, you may need to seal the canvas (paint or spray a sealant over it). Often fibers on fabric just keep it from adhering.

If you are saying the transfer paper or contact paper is not sticking to the vinyl, I have no idea why not.

That's correct--the vinyl is not sticking to the canvas. It is not sealed, so I will try that. I just spray painted it and let it dry.

I have no problem with the contact paper and the vinyl. That part is good.

Thanks for the response, I truly appreciate the feedback!
