This is a common problem for newbies. Beginners forget that the interface must “breathe”. The main thing here is to feel the distance.
In mobile UI, gestures are a great to help. They can activate hidden controls.
Exclude gradients and shadows

Personally, I came to a simple technique. Each UI element assign a priority rating from 1 to 10. I use this during the wireframe building.
Get rid of borders and frames
Don’t add new items just for design. It is better to concentrate on the functional elements. They should look great and be in harmony with the other UI elements.
Limit design styles
UI aesthetics and understanding is not in the diversity of styles. Dev team will thank you for a small number of styles.
