Journal Page - Heart Longing

So I decided to turn the heart I shared in THIS post (pic below) into a journal page.  I started with a page that already had some iced spruce Distress Stain on it - I was testing to see if it dried the correct color and it did.  But I didn't have a plan for it so...  I glued the heart to the page with Golden's gel medium and let it dry.  Then I first painted around it with Fresco Finish yellow submarine, let dry.  Then covered the yellow with Fresco Finish crackle glaze, I just spurted some on and spread it with my finger, let it dry... then painted over it with a mix of Fresco Finish very berry and claret, let dry.  Next I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil and gold embossing paste to add another type of crackle along the bottom and in the upper right corner.  I've been looking at it for a couple of days and part of me thinks I should do more around the heart, but don't know what... and part of me like it just how it is, so for now, at least, it's how it is.
