Basic Elements:

You’ll need only two things:

Now let’s start.

Step 1:

First of all open your CorelDraw program. Create a new file. Set the paper size to A4 and change it to landscape view.

Step 2:

Go to the file menu and click import (You can also press Ctrl + I on the keyboard). Choose the image you want to change the background of (that is first basic element) and click import. Now click and drag the image wherever you want (or hit Enter to bring the image at the centre).

Step 3:

Click on the Bezier Tool in the tool box. And draw the lines on the part whose background you want to change. And remember to end with the starting node (Means end with the same node from where you started). By doing this you can fill color in it. Shape it using shape tool (It is situated in the tool box). Color it with any color. After doing everything you will get something like this:

Step 4:

Select the background image and go to Effects–> Powerclip–> Place Inside Container. One dark arrow will come. Click that arrow on the shape which you have created. Now you will see the part without its background. If you want to edit its position then go to Effects–> Powerclip–> Edit Contents. Edit the image position. After editing click on Finish Editing Object. To remove the outline of the image right click on the cross that is top of the color box (or go to outline tool in the tool box and click None). You’ll get like this:

Step 5:

 Now import the background image(Second basic element) which you want. I think you know how to import it (As I have told this in starting). Select it and go to Arrange–> Order–> To Back Of Page and the photo will go behind and arrange the photo as you want. I did it like this:
