If you’ve visited my blog recently, you’ve likely seen the interface. It’s designed pretty well. The WicketPixie theme is available as an open-source theme, and is free for you to use on your own site. Liftsifter sent me a message the other day to let me know about a background maker that works great with WicketPixie. Stripe Generator 2.0 allows you to create… well… stripes for your background.

There are three basic steps to creating what you want:

  • Play with sliders and color pickers, untill you obtain a super-cool stripe tile.
  • Press “Download” to save your creation.
  • Edit your css adding this line to the element you want to stripe:
  • background-image: url(“path-to-stripe.png”);

  • If you want to only repeat horizontally your tile (as in the case of tiles with gradient), you must add this line too:
  • background-repeat: repeat-x;

That really is all there is to it. You can create some seriously gorgeous and slick-looking designs. Why not check it out today, and share your creations with the world.
