Open office Draw
Click on Basic Shaped button (way on the bottom, next to smiley face) and click on the very bottom where you see a frame.
Draw a frame on the page, notice your frame will be blue ( YOU CAN ALSO DO THIS WITH OTHER BASIC SHAPES, BUT THIS IS A PRACTICE ROUND!)
-Draw your frame
-Go to top left tool bar (top of screen) and click on "Format"
-Go to the last tab "bitmaps"
-Click "import" button
-Insert favorite damask pattern or any pattern that you like!
-Name it what ever you want
-Click on okay
-Then it should fill in your box with the graphic.
-If you want to make a change, you will see "tile" you can unclick that box, to see if you like the pattern to be bigger.
-Pretty much everything else, you need to play with it for a good hour or so after you learn this technique and you will start to get a hang of the program.
