Hey Leo,

Check out the "MWPSK-How-To_Create-New-Theme.pdf" at this address: http://www.codeplex.com/MyWebPagesStarterKit/Wiki/View.aspx?title=How%20To%3f&referringTitle=Learn
(it's the 5th point on the list).
A nice starting point would also be to mess-around with the existing themes (App_Themes\..):
 1) Choose one of the themes that looks like what you want
 2) and then edit its files & pictures in the "App_Themes\xxx" folder (where xxx refers to the name of the choosen theme), using Visual Studio
 3) save it and check it out.

This will also help you understand the design/structure of this CMS.

Hope this helps.
