Bonus Pro Tip: Putting the Ornaments on Top of the Image/Text Placeholder
You can use the botanical clip art as the foreground ornaments on any placeholder. When you customize your own template, you’ll notice that every clip art element will automatically become the background on the presentation slides. So, if you insert your image in the image placeholder, the image will block the ornaments, even if you already sent the picture placeholder to the back.
