HELP match my ceiling texture

I am trying to match a ceiling texture. I am fairly good at other styles, but I've never seen one like this. I've played a little with watered down mud and plastic, but nothing comes close enough. If anyone knows how this is done, an explanation would be appreciated. Attached is a picture. The ridges are 1/16 to 3/16 high and in a random pattern. It is on a ceiling and has been spread on and given this look.
Any ideas?

HELP match my ceiling texture

It appears to have been rolled with thinned joint compound and some sort of brush pulled through it, maybe even a paint brush?? That would be my best guess. Kind of a small picture to tell for sure.....
