Stuck Texture

Hello,

For some reason, one layer of the five total I am working with has a texture that looks like the underside of a carpet!  I cannot change it.  Apply Surface Texture does not seem to allow me to change paper type.  I used Paper > Standard Artist Canvas throughout and all other layers look just fine.  The sky and clouds in the pic below are what I want - just a hint of texture.  But the balloon and basket are over the edge.  Any help in getting it back to some form of normal would be greatly appreciated!!  Thank you!
