You can use the Photoshop guides and new guide layout to create cells for the spots. The spots for the brush can be added to the cells uniformly or in random sizes. You can also change the color of the spots for each cell as required. Quickest way is perhaps using custom shapes. You can make the spots small or perhaps make the spots in random sizes. You can apply different shapes, they don't have to be circles though that is probably the most convential approach for the design
