Need Ideas?

Can't quite decide how you want to design your cover image?
Click to view a Pinterest Board I've put together that has a wide variety of cover photo ideas!

Pay attention to some of the covers, notice they are links to templates that can be purchased. Just to be clear, you are to design your cover image, not use a template someone else has put together, (whether it is free or purchased,) but just think, if you enjoy this, you could be designing your own templates and selling them online as a great way to make money!
