Need Alice in Wonderland graphics or photos for your junk journal, but don't want to pay for stock photos? You're in luck! I have a huge list and collection of free vintage Wonderland graphics and am sharing the list here -- all you have to do is choose the ones you want and download or save them. In most cases I've either uploaded a high resolution file for you or I have linked you to the source, where you can get the item. A few are from other designers and may require a code to get them for free (the code will be in the post ;)
Each of these images is public domain or original art -- or a combination of the two. You may use them for items for sale. Any items restored or created by me in the list below can also be used in your projects for sale -- just don't sell the files themselves.
Use these free vintage Alice in Wonderland images in your junk journal, on pages, and as embellishments. A few of the ones I made are already turned into pockets and tags, making them super easy to add to your journal. Many of these fun vintage images are from my own collection of vintage ephemera -- most date from before 1920, all are copyright free or public domain (or created by me ;)

This is another interesting design from the Smithsonian -- while this was made in 1915, I can absolutely see how Disney used these as inspiration for the film.

I adore the original, best known John Tenniel images of Alice, the White Rabbit and friends, but they get used an awful lot! I collected these images for you to try -- they are all free for commercial use and are a little less commonly used. If you're looking for something different, you may find exactly what you're looking for in here. Note that I have altered some images, but shared the originals as well. Find the whole collection in a single download here.
Public Domain Image of Lewis Carol
While I love the story of Alice and the pieces it has inspired, I'm not a fan of the author himself -- there's a reason why you'll see thousands of depictions of Alice and friends, but only the occasional story or glimpse of the author. Questions began to arise in the 1930s about Carroll's photography habits and his obsession with photographing children. Because of this, you'll rarely see images of Carroll used in artwork or in published pieces. Here's a rare image of the author himself, and here's a bit more about the controversy -- and what the Smithsonian has to say on Carroll.
Printing Tip for Vintage Alice in Wonderland Images
I love the charming vintage look of these, but hate having a plain white page back. Printing on parchment or colorful paper doesn't help, because then you lose the whites and light colors. I ordered the paper below and put it through the machine so that the image you want prints on the back. This gives you a two sided piece with a distressed back and the chosen image on the front.
Amazon paper -- 6 vintage shades to use as backing for 2 sided vintage images:
Vintage Flamingo Illustration
Another vintage image, this one is from Raw Pixel and would make a nice addition to any Alice in Wonderland Junk Journal :
