I'm going to suggest a different method as using layer masks will cause the texture to reveal layers below the text layer, and that might not be what you want.   I've made the Text grey and background white temorarily so we can see what is going on There are some excellent texture brushes in the Kyle Megapack which is free to CC subscribers.  However with a zillion presets it can be difficult finding what you want, so scroll on down and open the Paintbox group   The preset is probably too dense...

Hi Tristan. Here is a ridiculously brief summary…

  1. Add a mask to your layer.
  2. Paint with black on that mask to hide parts.

 

If you'd like more details with any part I'm happy to elaborate.

Make a selection from your "Grain" style.

Add it to your image layer as a layer mask.

 

If you want to "paint" your grain on,

Create a layer mask (white), then paint with black.

There are some excellent texture brushes in the Kyle Megapack which is free to CC subscribers.  However with a zillion presets it can be difficult finding what you want, so scroll on down and open the Paintbox group

 

The preset is probably too dense compared to your example, so go to Brush Settings > Scatter and reduce Count to 1

Brush in your texture to the texture layer.  I touched down at one end, and Shift clicked at the other end

OK, now you need to swap a few things around and you are done

First clip the texture layer to the Type layer by right clicking

Invert the background layer  Ctrl i (Cmd i)

And make the type layer full white (if that is what you want

A Hard Mix Pattern Layer with Inner Glow and Blend If-settings might provide another option.
