This opens a drop down menu with options for Rotation.
Select Flip Vertical.
The Duplicate becomes Flipped Vertically or Upside Down.
Drag it to the bottom of the page.
OK, so now with two identical shapes on the page, we want to Decrease the Size of the bottom shape, so that there is some contrast between the two shapes.
In the Size Group, set its Height to 2.75 Inches.
From the Shape Styles Group, select the Shape Fill Icon.
This opens a drop down menu with options for Color, Picture, Gradient and Texture Fills.
Select Blue from the Standard Colors section of the menu.
Selecting the bottom shape, set its Fill Color to Light Green which is also in Standard Colors.
Give each shape the same Outline Color as their Fill.
And now, both Shapes have new Oultine Colors.
So one layer of the flyer is complete.
Next we'll move on to the Images.
Once the Images have been downloaded, you will need to place them into the flyer.
Then go to the Text Group and select the Text Box Icon.
I have not gone into much detail about the Built-In-Window here. To find out more about using Text Boxes, visit the Microsoft Word How To Section.
At the bottom of the Built-In Window, select Draw Text Box.
Your Cursor will change to an X. While holding down your mouse button, drag and draw a Text Box on the Flyer.
The Text Box will have 8 Handles around it for Resizing.
The Ribbon will also change to the Format Tab.
There you can set the Text Box Size to a Height of 7.5 Inches and Width of 6 Inches.
On the Insert Tab go to the Illustrations Group and select Picture.
This will open the Insert Picture Window.
Locate your file and click the Insert button at the bottom of the window.
The Image will be placed inside the Text Box.
You'll see that the Image is quite small and there is also a Picture Tools Format Tab.
In the Size Group set Height to 6.5 Inches and Width to 5.94 Inches.
And now you have a much larger Image to work with.
Next set the Shape Fill to No Fill.
The Text Box is still there but you can now see the background through it.
Remember to move this Image, you will have to select its Invisible Border and not the Image itself.
You can tell if you have the right box selected by its Border.
The Text Box Border has Dashes while the Image Border is a Solid Line.
Now have a look at the Transparent Text Box with Image.
