By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get a premium membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get a premium membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!

When you open the gate to your own Secret Swirly Garden, what do you see? What kind of vines twist around the rusty fence and what sort of spells or swirling haze fills the space between the dreaming flowers? Imagine the perfect refuge from the world, a secret spot you can disappear to, a place filled with profuse greenery or other natural forces that bring you to a meditative state, that is both comforting and inspiring.
All mediums except literature, photography and fractal art are allowed. Crafts are also okay, if they convey the idea of a garden. All submissions must also follow general gallery guidelines (see below).
The submission must be swirly. More swirls means better chances of winning.
The submission must have been created for the contest.
You don't need to be a member of the Swirly Artists to join.
Please submit your finished piece to this folder: swirly-artists.deviantart.com/…
The deadline is April 13th, after which a jury of three will vote for the winners.
Important!! Please comment in the journal if you would be interested to join! Also, if you'd like to help out in promoting the contest on your own deviantart page, it would be really helpful!
If you want to help us out with a prize - a simple journal feature of the winners, a free commission, some Deviantart Points, a subscription or anything else that you can think of, please comment below and share the good will. I am still asking around for some additional features by our affiliates.
All placements will receive journal features at Swirly-Artists, and on Kuume 's and crazyruthie 's journals.

Visual art containing both flowing movement and swirly lines. (Twisted, curly; wavy and flowing.) Syntheses of expressive and realistic elements are encouraged, but purely abstract designs are also well appreciated.
All visual medias allowed, except for fractal art and light painting. Heavily mirrored work is alright, if you can still make out the shapes in the original drawing from which it has been generated.
No rough sketches. Linework is all right if it looks clear.
No single-line flurries of swirls as the main "swirly" part.
No blurred/stained/overexposed/shadowy/pixelated photographs or scans, or huge watermarks.
No work drawn on checkered or lined paper.
Please crop the borders of scanned/photographed pieces so the rims of the work are not visible. (Does not apply to handicraft.)
sincerely...ruthie! i'm going to promote my own group...:which is affiliated Swirly Artists.... i think our members are into contests... w00t! and i KNOW they love swirls, so get going guys!
