Nothing built in, but you should be able to find something suitable on a
clip-art CD, I'd think.

Once you have a file with the pattern you want to use, just import it into
a stack. Revolution can use any image in any loaded stack as a tiled
background pattern - just set the backgroundPattern of the object to the ID
of the image. (You can import it into the stack where you want to use it,
then hide the image so it's not in the way. Or you can create a substack
and place any images you use in the substack for easier access. The
substack is always available whenever the main stack is open, even if the
substack window isn't open, so such an image can always be used.)
