Wordpress custom them software

I have a background and other artwork to create a custom wordpress theme. The background will be the shell for the theme - it needs to show through. I did the pHP from scratch but it's too buggy and now I am in a hurry and need a way to automate this or simply a way to take an existing wp template and turn it into the attached background design. I tried 'artisteer' software but found no way to just make my own from scratch using my design only. It lays one of their prefab designs over the background. Please see the attached background and what the final design will need to look like. Any suggestions on automated wordpress design software besides 'artisteer' or instructions on an easy way to do this in word press with an existing template? Background layer Mock-Up

Hi dmullis,

If you can make it in HTML, you can make it a WordPress theme.  jeremyjared74 posted a tutorial article that walks you through it step by step.

Just replace his HTML code with yours and you should be fine.

Hi Jason 1178,

I really want to learn this and have bookmarked  jeremyjared74 's tutorial. ( I think I followed an old one earlier and the wp- code has changed since then - oops).

I am not sure this is okay to ask on experts..I never have needed to ask before. I just had a phone call today with some bad news. Do you guys know anyone I could outsource this too? I wanted to learn it better myself and still will. Just checking on alternatives right now due to the situation. TIA
