I tried that but it just inserts the images into the header and footer area respectively.
After a lot more searching I found this css3 layout (as shown below) on the internet standards site W3 Schools.
/* Body */
background: url(../wp-content/uploads/2016/05/img02.jpg) left top repeat-x, url(../wp-content/uploads/2016/05/img01.jpg) left bottom repeat;
I should be all good now.
