Open seamless tile.xar; part of the work has been done for
you. The background green pattern tiles seamlessly; it's your

CTRL - K to put a copy of the large flower directly on
top of the original.
Use your keyboard arrow keys to reposition the copy of

the copy by nudging it to the bottom. Figure 2-3 shows
where the duplicates lie in one of many possible pattern
