Hey there. Thank you for the appreciation. The easiest way to get the effect you're looking for, is to create your own texture brushes in photoshop, from the pictures you own or non-copyrighted photos from the internet. There are loads of tutorials available online on how to do that.
Once that is done, you have to halftone the texture/s so the layer is in one color. After that you can change the color to whatever you want (still being one solid color per layer) The moon here is in two layers, orange below, yellow above, both layers halftoned. @Narfcake has pointed you towards some great tutorials on halftones. Give them a read.
There are also ready-to-use texture brushes available online, that you can download and use like you would any of your brushes in photoshop (you'll still need to halftone them though, if you're going to be using them in a t-shirt design) Just make sure the artist has given the permission for the brushes to be used commercially (usually in the description), if you're gonna be using them to make money.
I hope this made sense. =)
