Heyyyy....Isn't the right side, (the painting side), supposed to be rougher than the back?

I think I've just found out some of my problems.

I bought AcquareLLo, 140 lbs, 9 1/2 X 12 1/2 inches...I thought I was getting a real good price, but it's just dawning on me...I think the paper was bound backwards!...Hence, the "good" price. I just tore out the next leaf for Sundays lesson, and it felt strange...smooth. The other side felt rough. Hmmm.

I've been painting in the binder and not taking the paper out, but thought I would for this lesson. Guess I haven't been paying attention.....BUT I WILL FROM NOW ON!!!!
