    im trying to get my site sorted after the theme I was using decided to implode or something after the 2.6 release!!

    I have a new theme that I like but its a bit bland......

    I want to stick some "grunge" all along the header and down the right handside.
    see http://www.chrissayburn.com to see what I mean.

    What dimensions do I need to use and what code do I need to add and where!?
    the image/s will be placed in http://www.chrissayburn.com/wp-content/themes/UpstartBloggerMinim/ubminim/images/

    All changes to styling (including background graphics) have to be made in the theme's stylesheet (style.css) or directly in template files using inline CSS.

    Links to foreground images should be inserted into templates.

    The dimensions of decorations should match those of elements being decorated (i.e., if your sidebar is 240px wide, it's a good idea to have a 240px-wide background, unless you plan on using it with a repeat-x attribute).
