Angel of the North

This project has been my first attempt at landscape art with the sewing machine.  I have mentioned before that the idea of a collection of items featuring North East images is something that I am interested in putting together.  This view of the Angel of the North has quite a lot  of 'art' to it rather than just applique pieces.

At first the Angel was going to be central to the picture but I was at a loss as to what else to add to the scene.  I decided a more pleasing composition was to move it to the top of the frame and add  the path, fence and grass in the foreground.

This still looked a little plain, so the tree appeared on the right  and the title on the left to finish things off.
