2. Starting with black of the lady bug, place a seed bead and then a sequin onto a pin. For all of the sequins, you will always first place a bead on the pin and then a sequin.

3. Then fill all of the black areas first. It is ok ot overlap some if necessary. On the face, make sure that you use the silver sequins plus clear beads for the eyes. Once the black areas are finished, fill the rest with red. Use a black bead occasionally to create the typical lady bug spots.
