Boy, oh boy has texturing always been such a struggle for me! I go into illustrations determined to add dimension, then I feel like the texture I've added looks too heavy, or weird, or unnatural, so I mess around with the eraser or opacity to tone it down... and by the time I think I'm finished and check my before and after... there isn't any noticeable difference. Every. Single. Time. 

But I'm starting to get the hang of it now, and I'm determined to work texture into more pieces and get better! My final is pretty big and lost some of the detail when I re-sized for Skillshare, so here are my individual rooms [and exterior wall] :)

It was oddly satisfying drawing all of the furniture pieces I would LOVE to own, but have no space or money for - lol

Thank you for a great class Jamie - from layering to brushes to the actual texturizing, you're really great at breaking everything down and making it easy to follow!

P.S. My only speedbump was working in Procreate 5 vs what you're working with in class (I think it's 4??) Since the update's brush menu is so customizable, I found myself having to pause a lot, and even google some things. (Seriously, whoever on the Procreate team who decided to nix the "invert" button on the brush shape selection, and switch it to double tap... I can't.)
