Pattern for water bubbles

Consider we have a bubble with appropriate gradient and shade. Is there a function in Inkscape to create a pattern of the bubbles. We need two things:
(a) semi-randomly altering the size (generally, upper bubbles are larger)
(b) randomly deforming the circle shape.

Something like this picture:

or in a simpler form, consider

Size and rotation can be changed randomly. Take a look into the spray tool options ( - a bit outdated, some new options have been added, see ... Spray_tool).

Then, afterwards, you could still modify the bubbles with the tweak tool, see .
