Footprint Ladybug

People told me ladybug is for good luck and I’ve been believing in that ever since. I can never have enough of ladybugs in my art or crafts. Thanx to Handprint and Footprint Arts, let’s do a footprint ladybug today ๐Ÿ™‚

Footprint Ladybug

Paint your heel black

Paint the remaining 3/4 of your foot red

Nice ๐Ÿ™‚

Stamp your painted foot onto a piece of paper

Paint your fingertip black. Dot the bug.

Paint your fingertip white and dot two eyes.

Use a thin paint brush and paint the eyes and legs and you are done ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. He’s so neat and careful that you can just let him do it on his own. That’s so… neat (literally)! If me, I would probably line the whole floor with old newspapers haha! The ladybug is very cute!
