Listed here is a collection of feminine themed scene creators and mockups that I use to present my designs and the ones that are definitely on my wish list.

Always make sure to test if the text is visible enough in the distance, because that is how the poster will be viewed most of the time. On the other hand, if you are creating a brochure cover, you have a lot more freedom to play with the text. You can choose to make it smaller, bigger or use the combination of both, depending on the effect you are trying to achieve.
