Is there a way to text in a particular pattern in GIMP? Meaning, let's say I have a plaid or animal pattern and I want a word spelled using that pattern.

Thanks!

Okay, I figured out a way to do it. Not sure if it's the traditionally "correct" way to do it, but I think it'll work.

I create a layer with the word in the font I want, place the patterned paper I want to use below it and in the layers palette right click the text layer>alpha to selection then click on the paper layer. On my canvas I right click>copy>paste. then I delete my original font layer and paper.

Hope that all made sense!!
