Default Matching text box or shape color to textured slide background


Hello

I am using the "Saddle" theme for my slides. The slide background is beige with a texture. Is there a way to make text boxes or rectangle shapes match the textured background. I want to cover portions of an image using the text box or shapes but cant get the colors to match the background.

I have attached an example slide of what I am doing. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

On a PC you can Right Click and set the Fill to Slide background. Don't hava Mac to see if there's anything similar.
