Some submission suggestions:
ALL of the components of your assignment need to fit on to the original image or they will now show up on your submission - feel free to make the text very small for your reflection, I can enlarge it when I grade it!
You should go into the submission area and choose either “File” or “Resources”
“File” → select either from your Google Drive (this is sometimes glitchy - If it appears gray, you can’t select it)...or you can Download your Drawing and attach it from your Downloads.
