Ornament - student project

I am using Affinity Designer (not Illustrator), so I have found ways to create similar textures, but they are not quite the same. Affinity Designer does not have Grain. The closest thing is Noise, which can be used with any colour or gradient. The only option is what percentage of noise. Generally the texture is fairly subtle.

I decided to add texture to an ornament that I created in the class by Elias Sarantopoulos. That was one of my first Skillshare classes. You can see my project here: https://www.skillshare.com/classes/design/Create-an-Ornamental-Design/393015114/projects/57124?via=class-details-projects-page

I'm pleased with the changes. Thank you, Hayden!

I did another project with texture in Helen Bradley's Stipple Texture class: https://www.skillshare.com/classes/design/Illustrator-for-Lunch+-Stipple-Texture-Effect-Grain-Gradients-Blends/1008661904/projects/85814?via=class-details-projects-page
