Basement drywall finishing with knockdown ceiling texture

I finished the drywall in this basement, but want to show a different style of ceiling texture.  This texture is performed with a rubber roller and it is a variety of knockdown.  The way you apply this texture is to put the design on the ceiling rolling it all one direction.  Once the texture has been rolled and begins to set up you roll it the opposite direction.  Then you wait until the texture begins to tack up and you use a flat knife and applying very light pressure you knock the ceiling down.  The pictures show before and after texturing.
