Hand painted notebook

I painted this paper mache notebook the other day. I cracked it, but I think I like it better without the crackle. Part of the reason for crackling was to give it a shinny smooth finish, but I am not entirely thrilled about the imperfect face. What to do... I have not decided to auction it off or give it away as a gift. In the meantime, I am going to need to look for a sealer that is glossy because the painted surface on this book ends up being too flat and a bit like a chalk board to the touch, without sealer.
