Makers Gonna Make: Take Two

I started this project in Mary Kate's first class: Intro to Hand Lettering.  After watching the lessons, I decided to simplify the design I had originally done so I could practice & learn a bit better with adding color and especially texture.  I did three separate sketches and put them together (the hexagon bounding shape, the four corner illustrations, and the main text) in Illustrator.  I ended up using Illustrator to make the bounding shape because it was so much easier & cleaner looking than messing with my hand drawn shape (which I had kind of messed up anyway).  

Here's my color inspiration, a piece of vintage Liberty fabric:

and the illustration in color:

Here's where I'm at now, with a canvas texture in the background and wrinkled paper texture in the bounding shape:

I feel like it needs a bit of something else yet, or maybe more texture options?
