Hands and hearts

I took various hand images from magazines and placed them on two pages that I painted with fabric paint. I was trying for a Rorschach, but the paint was too thick. The left heart is stamped and embossed on hand painted paper. The right side is magazine images only. After I scanned the page, I wished I had painted the background with a wash. I felt it looked pretty plain. I may try to jazz up the pages sometime in the future when things are less hectic in my world. I also am struggling for a title. I've considered something like "reach," "share your heart," or "passing on the love." Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Love your heart in hand spread, hands and hearts are fav images of mine ... this is inspiring Elizabeth, thanks as always!
Have you ever used Golden's Glaze (it comes plain or in colors)? that adds nice sheer color to pages. I'm not sure that your spread needs anything further tho!
