171: 20in20's March/April 2021

Hi everyone, I'm back from hiatus and  I thought I would do a challenge wow this has really pushed me, I do hope these are good! I also did the full set as what is the point of having 20 really good themes to push you and only using half of them! Also thank you to jsfunction for the themes they are perfect :)

Themes & Explanations

1. Random character: Ginny Weasley (Harry Potter)
I found all my caps were of dark times, so I choose this one from the order of the Pheonix, I hope it's allright even though she has her eyes sort of shut.

2. Random icontest challenge: Challenge 271: Pride @ elitesimplicity

I loved this challenge, it was a challenge to find the right cap for the job, I do hope that this one does it justice as I would have entered a simular icon to the challenge :) Plus Sara is such an amazing Bi character and a bad-ass! :)

3. Random praise: "The vibrant coloring really makes this icon a standout"
I chose this cap from Spiderman: Homecoming as it stood up to vibrant colours

4. Random screencap: Once Upon a Time (originally posted here by wandererjulia)
I have not watched this show, but the cap is great

5. Random song: Nicole Scherzinger - You Will Be Loved (a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XU8JMNs7eDI">YouTube | Spotify | Lyrics)
I chose this cap, as I felt the character of Effy has needed more love for all her mistakes

6. Random tutorial: Tutorial by raiindust (the first tutorial on this page, for this icon)
I found this one a challenge, as I still only have Photoshop elements, so I tried to get as much of the finished icon, this one looks to purple, but it's near enough

7. Random movie poster: Coquette (1929)
I love the colours in this poster, also the floral elements so I went with peonies in this peach colour it also has yellow in the flower center

8. Random quote: "It was like the beginning of life and laughter. It was the real meaning of the sun" - Charles Bukowski, Factotum
I had so many ideas for using this quote, most of them had no caps :( but I chose this cap instead of Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy 2, as baby Groot is the meaning of this quote

9. Random textures: mm3butterfly, scoobyatemysnax, sweettasteofbitter
I loved playing around with these, but it mostly worked on this cap of Lana Del Ray, so vintage-inspired that suited the paper type one

10. Random font: Jellyka Delicious Cake
I rarely use fonts on my icons because my spelling problems, so using this was a challenge, but a good one, I choose Poldark as the font seems to fit period drama

11. Random trope: Muggle Best Friend
I had lots to choose from for this trope, but I chose Arthur from Merlin, as I love this character progression over the series, plus I wanted to remake it with this cap

12. Random remake: this icon
I love the remake picked, a classic Disney movie so I made it without the frame this time, but a pale pink background

13. Random song title: Get Up
Well, I used this stock image to say how I feel most mornings :)

14. Random inspiration icon: by rusts
I used the colours to create this one, I hope it's simular

15. Random palette: Art Déco Xmas Card
Wandavision suited this palette so much, so it was an easy choice, although a weird choice, but the best one

16. Random art: Christus aan het kruis (Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, 1650/1659)
I was planning to use this cap for another challenge, but saw the colours and check the art the colours matched, plus it's an angel so it sort of fits the theme, plus I keep meaning to watch Good Omen's

17. Random album cover: Eurythmics – Be Yourself Tonight
I had lots of ideas, looking all over for caps then I took the title and colours which I thought of again Wandavision the final episode when Wanda finally becomes the Scarlet Witch, the title also has a positive message too.

18. Random book cover: Small Chunks of Sounds: Middle Childhood Workbook - Ages 6 -11 by Romanile Publishing House
I loved the greens and purple of these, it reminds me of a friend of mine that does screen prints in similar colours, as I thought the cover looked very much about nature, I choose this stock image of this flower with purple and green, which is also in my parents garden

19. Random word: mobile
I used  mobile in stock so I choose elephants that are quite mobile out in the bush

20. Random screencap pool: Doctor Who (caps from kissthemgoodbye.net)
I tried a lot of the caps in this pool, with two nearly making the cut, but 11 did it for me.
