"Span-Tex" Spray Ceiling Texture - blend in old with new?

I have removed part of our downstairs office drywall ceiling to spray the rim joists of the room. There is a forced-air furnace ducting in the room that is framed, drywalled and spray textured with CGC Synko "Span-Tex" and it remains in the room (https://www.usg.com/content/usgcom/e...g-texture.html).

I have replaced the drywalled ceiling with new drywall and am planning on respraying the replaced part with "Span-Tex" so that they blend in. The new horizontal drywall meets the old "Span-tex" ducting drywall at a 90 degree angle. Here is a picture: Name:  20160820_152447_resized.jpg

This is what the "Span-tex" looks like: Name:  DSC04728.jpg

Are you texturing the entire ceiling? if so, a slight texture difference between the ceiling and walls won't be that noticeable. It only needs to be almost perfect if you are only texturing part of a ceiling or part of a wall.

I was thinking I would only spray texture the new part (labelled "New Drywall Area" in the pic above) so it matched the old, present "Span-Tex" section. I might have to paint the entire room ceiling after the texture on the new part has dried (new and old)... is this a good idea?

What I see in the pic is a flat not yet textured ceiling next to a textured bulkhead. Since it's not the same flat ceiling any texture differences won't be as noticeable. You often have to paint the entire ceiling to get everything the same color.
