Can anyone who has decorated their page give me some tips? I feel like my page looks really bland and I want to deck it out/declutter <3

OOOH! I can try to help with that.
PE: Decorating Your ProfileCommunity Week
Your profile page is the first thing people will see when they click on your name, so it's very important to leave a good impression! This article will provide some useful tips and tricks for both premium and non-premium members who want to convert their profile into their own, unique page. First off, some Do's and Don'ts of profile decoration:
Do:
Use dA's profile widgets-- there are lots of great options to chose from
Show off some art (that's what people are here for!)
Express your personality through colors, stamps, gifs, etc.


Don't:
Add so many images that your profile takes forever to load
Use garish or headache-inducing colors
Make text difficult to read with dark backgrounds
Non-Premium Widgets
While many widgets are restricted or locked for non-premium members, there are still a variety of great widgets that you can add to your profile, even without a membership.

This guide helped a lot with learning what I could do.
Basically to have a background on your boxes, they all have to be custom boxes, but you can change those titles and stuff.
I recommend using a custom background that doesn't have an obvious end to it, so that you can fit everything in without it looking to weird.
Also using dividers is a great way to make things look prettier spaced out without just having empty space or too many images.

If you want me to, I can work on your page for you. We can pick a scheme, I'll give you all the code, and then all you have to do is paste it into your custom box.
