secrets 1945

NOW TRADED
I made this for the Arty Girlz "Faces" challenge, and this face came from Digital Collage Sheets.com. She looks such a feisty character, someone brave and fearless who can hold her head up high, so as usual a story was unfolding in my head .....

Her code name is Justine and she was dropped into occupied France in 1943, where she operated an escape route. No-one ever guessed her secret identity but many people have cause to think of her as an angel ... Even after the war she kept the secret of what she had seen and done. Yes I do know I have a vivid imagination, but I've always been that way. When I used to make miniature scenes I could never begin until I knew the story of the person who lived there!

The background is a Paper Artsy stamp and the numbers and word "secrets" are Tim Holtz Distressibles.
