Begin this artwork by taking a white circular paper sheet as the base for the drawing craft, a cotton earbud, and a green wax crayon. Using the green wax crayon, make a small curved line over the bottom of the base, and then using the cotton earbud make strokes from the lines slantingly upwards from both sides of it to spread the color and form a common wheat. See the image for reference.
Step #2: Making More Common Wheat And Their Stems
As you made the green common wheat, make more of them randomly over the base and also the yellow ones. Now, using the respective color of the common wheat, make their curvy stems to the end of the base. See the image for reference.
Step #3: Making Leaves To The Wheat Stems
Using the same crayons, make the curvy small leaves at the bottom of the base among the stems randomly. See the image for reference.
Step #4: Flattening A Clay Circle
Take red clay and dough it into a clay ball. Place the clay ball above the common wheat and using a polymer clay pressing tool, press and flatten the clay ball into a clay circle.

For the last step, turn the clay circle into a ladybug. Take black clay, make a clay circle separate it into half, and stick it beside the red clay circle to form the face of the ladybug. Now, dough tiny clay balls from the clay and place one in the center of the ladybug’s red body and 3 on both sides along the boundary to make the texture of the ladybug. Also, grab a black sketch pen, and make a line over the ladybug’s body, dividing it in half. ake the antennas above the face of the ladybug on the base in a curly shape. Make the legs of the ladybug on both sides of its body on the base. Stick 2 googly eyes on the face by pressing it over the clay side by side.
Make 2 more ladybugs on the base randomly and over the common wheat. Make one on the left side of the yellow clay body and one on the right of the blue clay body. See the image for reference.
