For future update .... Imagine .... a paint brush called A History Brush
The History Brush tool allows you to paint back portions of an image from the previous state or starting state in a picture's history. The most popular use of the this tool would to take a color picture, convert it to black and white, then brush the original color back into a particular feature.
Imagine adding a texture then with this History Brush ,,, able to remove certain areas ... options could be A round Brush
a square brush , and various sizes of brush ... Layering ,,, fine , but this would be so much better easier ,,
