New look in gretchen gretchen! See the moodboard video

Just click the pic and see the video!

 
Hello Hello!
I'm back. I'd really like to tell you that I haven't touched the computer at all but that would be a lie. Nowadays one have to use computer in so many basic things like paying invoices. Anyway didin't use it almost at all except this week when I've been making new look to my blog. Have to admit that it was a little bit hard to live without my mac but the great thing was that suddenly I had a lot of time to do something else! Like paint, read and sew.

I also have new links in my blog like my work portfolio. For the first time you can go and see my professional work. I'm planning to make few new things here but they will appear when they are ready. Do you like the design? It's so different than before. I wanted to simplify the header. This project was very challenging. To clear my head - I made a moodboard. I also made a video of making it which you can see just by clicking the photo. Moodboard was a wonderful tool in focusing what kind of design I wanted. Yes, I have made the design even though I'm not a graphic designer. I also have bigger and more informative about section. So now getting to know me is easy. Below you can see pics of old gretchen gretchen layout. Things changes.

I guess this is it. A new beginning. Second year of blogging.


Moikka!
Täällä ollaan kera uuden designin. Mitäs tykkäät? Uusia juttuja on myös linkeissä kuten portfolio, josta löydät valokuvia. About on myös omana sivunaan ja siellä voit käydä lukaisemassa tästä blogista ja minusta. Muutama juttu on vielä tulossa mutta ne tipahtelee blogiin tässä kevään aikana sitten pikkuhiljaa.

    1. Lovely to hear. Thank you Annette. Making a video takes a lot more time comparing to writing a normal post. But if you manage to make a good one and you are happy with it - it's worth it.

    2. Hi Kreetta,
      oh, it's really a pleasure to discover your blog and work!
      So i was wondering if i could ask you how you did your moodboard video technically? So far I was only trying to learn a bit of editing in iMovie. So may I ask what type of program you are using? Have a great day! xo joanna (alias bb)

    3. Yes you can ask. I took photos with timer remote control. Camera on tripod. And it is edited with iMovie. So no big secret there :) but plan first that you save time in editing. Remember not to make it too long. Ok? If you are making it and have big problems. You can send a question and I try to help with it.
