First I used Lucy's tip from the last post, but instead of painting the actual felt, I painted the backing from it (I saved it from a previous project). Outline the flowers with glitter paint. Let that dry completely and put it just left of center.
Make a thick outline around the flowers with the black marker. Then use the white puff paint and outline around the black. Then do one more black outline around the white (once it is dry). This step will help your felt pop against your busy background.
Adhere you Hambly overlay on the right side of your layout. Then on top of that, put your Journal It diecut. Add your photo next.
Around your photo (and on the die cut), use the Daisy D's rubon tape.
I handmade the banner containing the rubon title and colored it in with watercolors.
