Artful Times DT challenge piece -- Badge, button or brooch

The challenge this time on Artful Times is to make a badge, button or brooch that fastens with a pin. I decided to make a badge to wear on courses.
I started off with pelmet vilene, with some tyvek and scrim on. I painted it with Golden acrylic paints, and then embossed it with some embossing powder.
The name is small scrabble tiles. The three larger beads at the bottom are hand made with painted Tyvek. The smaller beads are all sewn on afterwards.
The scan doesn't show up the texture very well, as its bouncing off the embossing powder.

Love the vylene background and the tyvek beads are cool.
I hope you remember to wear it at the next workshop I am at with you.

A gorgeous name badge Wendy and what a great idea - so much nicer that a paper sticker.
