Vector Texture Toolkit
When working on latest project: Rock Monster World.I needed a tool to create textured backgrounds using only vector elements.
Added a truncated version to resources hope you find it useful!:)

Contents
The Toolkit contains various elements to allow for the construction textured backgrounds using vectors but some aspects will need to be refined independently according to requirements (Size for instance!)
A. A set of simple styles that define transparency
B. Set of vectors (These are contained on a separate artboard)
C. A set of vector assets sub-dividend into 4 categories. (I was a bit concerned about the number of nodes here!...as their are compound paths included!)
D. A layout artboard with containing mask
E. An artboard containing irregular vector shapes. (and some textured compounds!)...does not reflect exactly the assets panel!

It will require a bit of experimentation to create what you need..

Export as bitmaps or Multiple artboard file to be re-imported to other files using the place tool

There are some 'basic' instructions included in the file

There are some samples here!

Sample images as below:

I have updated the toolkit as the instructions looked incomplete and annoying!.

Changes

Version 2.0 as zip file above (older version removed!O.o)
A. Edited instruction sheet to make it a bit more obvious!
B. Added additional Vector elements to the object sheet (as displayed on updated image above!)
C. Added an extra layer to the construction artboard (Hue) so can further edit colour from single layer
D. Reduced opacity of texture overlay 

 

Should work a bit better now!
