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:
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.

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.
