READ the chapter on Texture.
Portions of this book are online
Check these out this week.
Scale is Relative: A graphic element can appear larger or smaller depending on the size, placement, and color of the elements around it. When elements are all the same size, the design feels flat. Contrast in size can create a sense of tension as well as a feeling of depth and movement. Small shapes tend to recede; large ones move forward.
Texture is tactile.
