Katerina Marchenko Creates Artistic Embroideries

Katerina Marchenko creates these gorgeous artistic embroideries that are inspired by fashion and haute couture. She stitches colorful threads into tulle to create 3D-effect artwork that showcases her talent in combining colors and shapes.

“Embroidery is a meditative process which helps me to calm down and gather all my thoughts,” she explains. The artist starts each work by drawing the contours and then just begins to stitch without further sketching the piece.

5 фактов о процессе вышивки: ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀☀️В своей работе я использую еврофатин и итальянскую сетку. ☀️Вышиваю иголкой на еврофатине и крючком, если на итальянской сетке. ☀️Вышивая иголкой могу использовать от 2 нитей и более, зависит от объема, который я хочу создать. ☀️В основном это мулине, иногда нить для вязания, реже – металлизированная нить. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ☀️Для вышивки крючком необходима специальная нить, но я часто использую DMC, либо нить для машинной строчки. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 5 facts about the process of embroidery: ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀☀️Personally, I usually use the original eurotulle. It is a medium hard tulle. ☀️I embroider with a needle on eurotulle and if I work with luneville hook, then it is Italian tulle. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ☀️ If I use a needle, I can use 2 or more threads. It depends on the volume I want to create. ☀️ Mainly it is a floss thread. Sometimes a thread for knitting. And finally, less often – a metallized thread. ☀️ For luneville embroidery you will need a special thread. In my case, I often use the DMC, or the threads for the machine stitch. Good luck in creation your own masterpieces, dear followers☺️
